The purpose of Haven of Rest Ministries is to serve and glorify God through a Christ-centered outreach of love and compassion that responds to the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of disadvantaged men, women, and children without regard to their race, color, creed or social standing. Since the Haven of Rest Ministries was founded in 1943, we have had the privilege of ministering to thousands of people who were hurting and homeless. In addition to providing meals, lodgings, and clothing, also available are counseling, educational classes, Bible studies, job skill training, after-care assistance, and advocacy. Physical, emotional and spiritual needs are met.
