Haven House Juneau wishes to express their sincerest appreciation to the Juneau Community Foundation for contributing a $5000 grant from the Machamer Fund. This donor-directed fund was established by someone who wants to make a difference in Alaska. Thankfully, this grant will help fund initial Haven House staffing .
Haven House is a faith-based organization and plans to provide structured transitional housing and support for women exiting the correctional system. With community partners, this new nonprofit plans to offer counseling, treatment for substance abuse, life skills and employment coaching as needed in a faith-based environment for up to one year. Haven House, Inc. has received a FT2013 Designated Legislative Grant for $30,000. The board hopes to open the first Haven House home in 2013. For further information or to make a donation, contact Haven House at PO Box 20875 Juneau, AK 99802 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Again, many thanks Juneau Community Foundation for making this possible!
Rachel Sanders, Haven House Board Member
