In the United States, men make-up more than two-thirds of the homeless population, but are twice as likely to be unsheltered. The Haven of Manitowoc County aims to reduce that statistic by not only sheltering homeless men in our community, but also giving them the resources they need to achieve self-sufficiency. Anyone can make sure someone has a roof over their head for one night. It is the overall program, rather than just the bed, that makes for successful outcomes. The Haven combines case management, resource referrals, a Life Skills Group and an inter-faith approach to help men experiencing homelessness find reliable employment, adequate housing, and ultimately build up a savings account.
Our nonprofit organization relies on the generosity of our community to continue our mission. There is more than one way to support us and we appreciate any consideration.
We’re on a mission to eliminate homelessness in Manitowoc County. Our record shows we’re making a difference.
In the early 2010’s, Haven founder, Mark LeGreve, saw an unmet need for Manitowoc area homeless. Namely, there was little support for men as most services were targeted to women and children. By bringing together community members also interested in improving the lives of homeless people, LeGreve was able to secure enough funding to start the Haven. It officially opened its doors on April 15, 2014 and since then has served more than 300 men in Manitowoc County.
