Thank you so much for supporting The Haven. Your willingness to give so freely is greatly appreciated. Your support of The Haven's mission allows us to serve people in the community each year, providing access to shelter and services for individuals and families experiencing violence that they would not otherwise be able to afford.

Thanks to your efforts, we will be able to continue meeting the needs of those who truly need this assistance. Not only does your work help the organization, it directly impacts each person who receives assistance.

The Haven would like to thank everyone who donated candy and the other items requested for our children's programming. The children at our shelter received tons of candy and spooky treats thanks to the generosity of the community!
The Haven would like to thank everyone who participated in our Autumn Auction this year. The Haven wouldn't have been able to hold this auction without the generosity from the donors listed above.
Last month's virtual BINGO event was a success! There was a lot of spooky fun with many great prizes being won! The Haven would like to thank Northern Neck Popcorn Bag, Jovita Kelly, Brittany Clayborne, and Ellen Yackel for donating prizes for this event!
The Haven is excited to announce our annual Christmas Market on Saturday, December 4th (10am-4pm) and and Sunday, December 5th (12pm-4pm) at The Front Desk in downtown Warsaw. 

You will have plenty of opportunities to do some holiday shopping with the many vendors at the market. Food trucks will be in attendance as well. The Haven will be selling cider, hot chocolate, and a lot of baked goodies. The annual Christmas parade in Warsaw will be happening on Saturday so make sure you stop by to visit the market after the parade!

We hope to see you there!
The results are in for our quilt raffle. Saddie Piggot won the "Come Sail Away" quilt, created and quilted by Sarah Spivey for The Haven. We sold raffle tickets throughout the summer at local Farmer's Markets and events. The money raised with this year's raffle will go towards supporting the mission and work of The Haven.
All inside spaces for the Christmas Market have been filled, but there are still plenty of outside spaces available. Hurry before they are filled and sign up to be a vendor at this awesome Christmas Market on December 4th and 5th in downtown Warsaw at The Front Desk (187 Main Street Warsaw, VA 22572).

We cannot make this event happen without talented people and we hope you will consider and commit to being a vendor this year to help support The Haven.
