It's Spring!!

Greetings,

The Haven is doing great! The Haven celebrated two years in operation. We had food and fellowship! Thanks to all who came out an celebrated with us! In my last blog, the Haven announced that we were increasing our number of guests served from 8 to 12 men. We were full (at 12) all of January and February and have a waiting list of about 9 men who need The Haven's services. The Haven had 4 guests successfully transition out into adequate housing. One of those guests will be in our aftercare program. We continue to provide life skills education to our guests. Guests have life skills every Wednesday at 10am. In addition to our regular life skills schedule, two nurses from The Health Department of Manitowoc County taught a 4 part medication education series. The guests really enjoyed participating in the life skills that we offer and learn a lot.

The Haven is doing alright from a staffing prospective. We are looking to hire two candidates. One for the every other weekend day shift and a during the week every other weekend awake overnight shift. If you know anyone who is interested please contact me at the Haven (920) 652-9110. The Haven's volunteers have been doing a wonderful job filling in for our paid staff when they are not available as well as volunteering to work in conjunction with shelter monitors has been a huge help. That is all for now! If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.

Regards,

Michael Etheridge, Director
