North Haven is a 501c3 nonprofit that works with families, communities and indivividuals that have suffered trauma, tragedy and extreme loss. Our team has been traveling the US full-time for 4 years going to those in need. We never charge the families we work with. We have had the dream for over 15 years to build a wilderness healing retreat where the people we serve can come, at no cost to themselves. There, they will purpose time to heal while surrounded by an incredible team equipped to help them break through. The beauty and quiet of the wilderness is the perfect environment to quiet anxious hearts and take the first steps towards healing. Our team has used every resource at our disposal to find and purchase the land, but the build-out of this project is substantially more than we can accomplish on our own.

PROJECT NORTH HAVEN: Building a Private Healing Retreat
Team North Haven specializes in working with families and individuals that have suffered trauma, tragedy and deep loss. We have years of experience guiding people through their personal healing journeys. There is no formula for healing from grief and trauma. It is a deeply spiritual journey that requires a deeply personal approach. Team North Haven is not just equipped, but we are called to this work. We travel the country working with individuals, families and communities that have experienced insurmountable circumstances in their lives.
It has always been our intention to build a private healing retreat where these families can seek solace and refuge to purpose time to heal. Until this project is completed, our team continues to go out to those that need help.
North Haven has found and procured a 60 acre property in Northern Washington to begin our building project with our own personal funds. North Haven will be set in the mountains of the Okanogan Forest located in Northern Washington State. Here, there is a lack of noise and distraction, nestled in God’s creation, distanced from population and industry. Here there is a heavy hush of winter snow and a calming breeze in the summer winds. The main home will be a full service bed and breakfast and the surrounding property will be set with private Yurts for personal reflection. The trails will be carefully carved through the lower woods and adorned with symbolic meditation areas.
A substantial amount of time and energy has gone into the design of this retreat. There are many unique challenges that come with building in the wilderness. It takes unique vision to integrate infrastructure into nature without disrupting the natural beauty of the environment. We have designed the retreat center with the amenities to support the needs of our guests without taking their focus away from the beauty of the land. We have also developed a strategy to make North Haven financially self-sustaining. Not having perpetual fundraising endeavors releases our time to the families we serve. Wouldn't it be awesome to give to a charity that is completely self funded?
Families will be able to come and purpose to heal in one week increments where they will be housed, fed, pampered, and loved back to life at no cost to themselves. Guests of North Haven will receive the red carpet treatment. They are given quiet and beauty along with all the support and tools necessary to begin the restoration process. They will have access to rest and recreation alike. There will be hands on activities designed to reconnect them with hope and healing. The combination of physical care, love and encouragement and an abundance of quiet time, will counter the infections of weariness, loss, despair and hopelessness. North Haven is a second chance for families that have suffered unimaginable pain, trauma and loss.
North Haven Needs YOU!
Many of us have people in our immediate lives that have suffered unimaginable loss. Their grief becomes a wall that traps them inside and isolates them from the life they had hoped for. It is a helpless feeling to love so much yet feel so unequipped to bring change in those circumstances. What if there was a safe place where you knew the people you love could find refuge, help and a renewed sense of hope in their darkest hours? What if it was free for them to come and even their travel expenses were covered? What would it be worth to offer an entire family a second chance at life?
