In 2016 The Haven was very busy.
We gave out over 1900 diapers.
We also gave out wipes and cloth diapers.
We held parenting classes for over 25 families.
We held Baby Day Survival Courses and breastfeeding help for several families.
We held Art Walk kids activities, Christmas Parade kids activities.
We taught parenting classes at the elementary building.
We made home visits to stressed out teen parents and new moms when things were crazy.
We held supervised visitations in our office.
We laughed. We cried. We worried. We relaxed.
What we did not do...
Charge clients full price.
Turn anyone away.
To the families in Dallas County The Haven provides a place to get the help they need locally instead of driving to Bolivar, Springfield or Lebanon. We need your help to continue providing these services. Please consider sharing about us or donating a small amount to help us keep going.

If you've never heard of us before I encourage you to call 417-414-3003 and find out more about what we do. If you would like to talk to someone who's been directly involved, either a parent, family or agency, that can be arranged.
