The Excitement Is Building …

For over 60 years, The Haven has provided life changing services in our community. Our organization has grown at a record pace over the last two years and yet the demand for services supporting people with disabilities in our community has never been greater. The Haven has plans to not just meet this demand but also ensure our agency is thriving another 60 years from now!  We want to be known as a renowned service provider with cutting-edge programs that empowers individuals with disabilities.

You know what? We are on our way there! The Haven provides our community with resources that were once considered impossible to create and maintain. With the addition of our Frank Stern Employment Training Center in 2017 and the grand opening of Judy’s Oasis Aquatic Center scheduled for summer 2018, our organization is stronger than ever. But there is more work to be done…

We Need You To #BeTheOne to Take This Vision From Dream To Reality!

Join us for the 2018 Community Foundation of Sarasota County’s Giving Challenge; a 24-hour online giving event beginning on Tuesday, May 1 and ending Wednesday, May 2 (noon to noon). We ask you to #BeTheOne this May and make a positive, lasting difference in the lives of the 800+ children, teens, adults and their families who benefit from our valuable services every day and for many more years to come.

Your Donation Will Make TWICE The Impact! The Patterson Foundation will provide a 1:1 match for all unique gifts up to $100 per donor!

Because of individuals like you, The Haven is empowered to fulfill our mission to enhance quality of life for individuals by encouraging independence, championing inclusion and advocating for individual rights. We have been continually blessed by the generosity of our loyal donor family and thank you in advance for believing in the potential of those we serve. On behalf of The Haven’s board of directors, staff and clients we wholeheartedly send you our appreciation for all you help us accomplish.

President and CEO
