Join us in honor of World Homeless Day to raise funds to shelter and pay rehousing costs for homeless families in the Lansing-area.  Our goal is for families' stay in shelter to be as brief as possible and non-recurring.  Funds raised from this event will help to pay necessary rehousing costs for families, such as security deposits, so that they quickly move into permanent housing.

Because the course is on a trail, it is not wheelchair or stroller accessible.  However, we love spectators.  All are welcome to join the fun and watch their friends and family.  

The run/walk will not be timed.

Haven House provides emergency housing and support services for one-parent and two-parent families with children.  The shelter helps families who are homeless prepare for permanent housing by developing and promoting self-sufficiency, stability, and financial responsibility.

In addition to housing, residents receive meals, crisis counseling, assistance with goal setting and referrals to other agencies as needed.

Haven House has provided temporary shelter for homeless families since 1983. Over the years, the scope of our programs and services has increased dramatically. Not only do we support our residents with basic needs such as shelter, food, clothing, and personal needs items, but we have developed programs that will make an impact on the lives of our families after they have left our shelter.

Giving our residents the opportunity to improve their lives through goal setting, training, and education enables them to become more productive and less apt to become homeless in the future.
