At His Haven, our goal is to genuinely love, train, and equip people to reach their highest potential by networking or providing them with the necessary tools, favorable opportunities, and optimal conditions. This allows us to support individuals and families as they strive to reach their desired, God-given level of excellence.
Since 2019, His Haven has been honored to have the opportunity to pour love, life, and hope into Elmira and surrounding communities in Elmira, NY. The ministry specifically addresses serious issues, such as poverty, homelessness, individuals impacted by abuse, incarceration, and those coming out of addiction. His Haven is the umbrella organization, but all of our programs fall under His Haven in one of four divisions designed to uniquely meet the needs of all the s individuals and families that come through our doors.
We love families, and our Metro Kids Program is a great way to spread that love! His Haven regularly schedules events all year long to support families and to give children fun activities to participate in. Children love our special activity days and programs like Under the Tree From Me, which allow them to shop for gifts for their families. We also have our Kids Farmers Market, Summer Drop-In Program, After School Drop-In Program, and so much more!
Many older adults in the Elmira area live in care facilities but do not have family members nearby. Others live independently but need emotional support. Our Senior Smiles Program offers that to them, and it includes a healthy dose of fun too.
Adults with Purpose
His Haven’s Adults with Purpose Program includes various services for men and women within our local community. It specifically targets domestic violence victims, people recovering from addiction, single parents, or homeless individuals.
One of our favorite parts of Adults with Purpose is our Priori-Day Programs, which make certain groups of people a priority. For instance, around Mother’s Day, we host Beautiful You Day, which is a day for women to come and enjoy getting pampered. Women can get their hair cut and styled, get manicures and/or pedicures, get new business casual clothing, and more. We also have a Priori-Day for men called Steak and Shave Men’s Day. This event is held the day before Father’s Day, and it is specifically targeted at homeless men and veterans. His Haven also provides supervised visitation services for families with court-ordered supervised visits. We are also members of the Supervised Visitation Network.
His Haven Southside partners with the Pine City Methodist Church to offer free food distribution to our local community through our Community Kitchen Program on the first and fourth Friday of the month. Pick-up and dine-in meals are available. At our Woodlawn Court location on the Northside of Elmira, we enjoy having special events and dinners throughout the year.
Find Purpose at His Haven
So many people in our community are struggling, and His Haven is blessed to be a part of the solution for individuals and families in Elmira. Our services are not designed to be a “bandaid”; instead, we want to come alongside those who need us and provide them with the tools they need to propel themselves forward, embrace their God-given purpose, and thrive.
