Mission: The organization is a social-service agency dedicated to meeting the needs of homeless women and children. The organization uses education, employment, and life skills training to help people move from homelessness to independence.
Programs: Stage ii housing - transitional housing program is a middle step between the shelter and independent living. It offers the same comprehensive case management services that are offered in the transitional shelter program. The length of stay in these units rnages from six months to two years, with the average being nine months. The transitional housing program currently maintains a total of eight apartments in libertyville that are owned or rented by the haven and then sub-leased to residents at an affordable price.
the haven shelter - transitional shelter program features a comprehensive array of services designed to transition a woman and her children beyond homelessness and towards independent living. Services offered include case management, career coaching, financial management, counseling, and advocacy. The shelter itself is a four bedroom house in libertyville that sleeps ten people. The average length of stay in the program is three to five months.
I will never forget the women and children who opened up their hearts and lives to me. I had the opportunity to volunteer with child care and sorting donations. The Lake County Haven helps women and children get back on their feet by providing housing, counseling, and training.
