Rescue, Restore, Release!
Haven of Rest Ministries exists to see those bound by life-dominating problems rescued, restored, and released while experiencing the love of the Lord Jesus Christ who commands us in the Great Commission:
“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” –Matthew 28:19-20
Haven of Rest exists to see lives changed by the power of the Gospel! We help men and women who are struggling with life-dominating problems, such as addiction.
What is included in The Haven programs?

Equipping for a better future: Christian mentorship and accountability, Bible teaching, life-skills training, chores, GED and Work Keys classes, job preparation, and more!
What is Haven of Rest?:
A Christ-centered ministry, focused on restoring broken lives of men and women. We share hope to hungry, hurting, and hopeless people.
We help men and women be rescued from their destructive life behaviors, restored to a new life, and released into society on their way to a successful life as a productive citizen. Many of the men and women that we help are homeless, hungry, and have no hope in life. They are at the end of themselves and need a place to stay with a new direction for their life.
What Haven of Rest Believes:
Haven of Rest Ministries believes it’s important for a person’s entire life to be transformed—physically, mentally, spiritually, emotionally, and socially. We are committed to restoration of the whole person through a Biblical approach that helps people learn how much God loves them and gain the Biblical insight they need to lead a productive life in Christ.
(And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man. Luke 2:52)
In my estimation our mission statement is one of the characteristics that sets Haven of Rest apart from other organizations. Rather than focus on the reasons people come to us, we focus on a heart change through establishing a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ and then putting the tools in their hands to become disciples of Jesus and then for them to disciple others.
We do this with long term Christ centered and Bible based programs that deal with not only the surface manifestations but the deeper root problems which are Spiritual in nature and has to do with heart issues.
We are blessed with a great staff and a host of volunteers which give of their time and resources. Also we have many partners who give monetarily to make it possible for this great work to continue to grow. I use the word partner for that is what it really is.
Saved to Serve,
In October 1960, Haven of Rest Rescue Mission was founded as a place for homeless men to receive food, shelter, and help. It began in a small building with 6 donated bunk-beds.
Today, Haven of Rest is a Christ-centered ministry that provides hope, healing, and recovery for men and women struggling with life-dominating problems, such as homelessness and addiction. The Haven has grown to accommodate an average of 90 men and women in its facilities and now has a thrift ministry that provides revenues for Haven programs.
The goal of the ministry is that every participant will desire to turn to Christ for freedom from addictions and hope for the future.
