The Desk Drawer Fund is proud to support Haven House under our Stable Housing philanthropic pillar. The Stable Housing pillar ensures support for all community members in securing reliable and safe shelter in the MSUFCU and OU Credit Union areas.

 

Founded in 1983, Haven House provides temporary shelter and supportive services for homeless families. The organization helps families prepare for permanent housing, develop self-sufficiency, and promote financial responsibility. Residents receive meals, counseling, and personal need items. Last year, 9,054 shelter nights were provided to families in the Lansing area.

 

Haven House also hosts a 5K Run/Walk in honor of World Homeless Day in October and works with other local programs like Adopt-A-Child for Back to School. The program allows volunteers to donate much needed school items to current and former Haven House children residents. Desk Drawer Fund sponsored the 2019 Metros Open Charity Golf Scramble and the $15,000 fundraised will be used to shelter more families, as well hasten the process of transitioning residents to permanent independent housing.

 

Molly Cook, Development Director of Haven House, said of the event, “As one of the first confirmed sponsors, the Desk Drawer Fund’s generosity encouraged additional sponsorship and allowed us to know right away that we were well on our way to our fundraising goal. We are still receiving donations from the event, but at this point [the current donations] will shelter and re-house approximately 15 families. We are beyond grateful for your support and to be a part of a community that prioritizes providing support to homeless families.”
