September 5, 2014 update

Friends,

We are quickly coming up on the fall and winter season. The Haven has been open almost 6 months already. So I thought I would share and update you on how we have done so far.

From the time we opened on 4/15/14 - 8/27/14 we have served 26 men,
10 of those men successfully transitioned (meaning they found a job, saved money, and found adequate housing)16 of those men voluntarily left without completing the program or was asked to exit due to zero tolerance violation/repeated violations of the policies and procedures of The Haven. I am pleased with these numbers. However The Haven wants to strive to have more and more successful transitions!  This all would not have been possible without your help. From the Monetary, Clothing, and Food donations received over time, we are able to help save lives! That is what this program is all about and you made it happen! Thank you!

We still have work to do. As the colder months approach us there will be more men seeking shelter. So we are looking for donations for winter boots and coats. Our meal calendar for September looks good for this weekend. The rest of the calendar is empty so please sign up to cook a meal soon. We just got a big delivery of meat. Everything from whole chickens to beef briskets. If you would like to sign up, here is the link to the online calendarhttp://teamup.com/ksdb1d145a7128f240/.  Also, if you attended the volunteer training back in May and July, don't hesitate to sign up during the week/weekends to help Shelter Staff out for a couple of hours. Gary, Kathy, and Mike thanks for volunteering during evening shifts.  I am having an organizing day on September 27th from 10am-1pm here at The Haven's donation storage. If 4-6 come to help it will not take long. We are just looking to fold and hang up clothes while putting clothes in order from sm-xxl. Please email me if you can make it. Food will be served. If you have any questions please let me know. Please take a look at our wish list attached below.   Thank you for your enduring and continued generous support of the Haven of Manitowoc County! 

Kind Regards,

Michael Etheridge
Associate Director

June 15 2014 update - Upcoming Volunteer Training

I hope everyone had a great weekend!  The Haven had a wonderful weekend with the garden fair taking place. We were successful with "Haven's Heavenly Hats". Joyce and volunteers sold over 55 hats!  Even though the weekend is over, there have been inquiries made on purchasing more hats! Awesome! The Bake Sale went well, too. Almost everything that was made and donated were sold!  We had a lot of response from people attending the garden fair asking about The Haven and acquiring information!  We appreciate our Board President Mark for coming out and setting up along with all the volunteers that helped with this fund raising initiative! In the near future we will be looking for people to help with brat fry fundraisers. I will keep you posted on those opportunities to help.

I would like to remind everyone that I will be having a Volunteer Training on July 24th. The training will take place here at The Haven from 6pm-7:30pm. Meals are looking good for this month. 

Many Thanks to all of you and your willingness to help!

Regards,

Michael
