AmeriCorps VISTA - The Haven of Portage County
We are an autonomous faith-based organization that is a rescue mission and warming center in Portage County that addresses each stage of homelessness and provides holistic healing through the power of the gospel. Our vision is that The Haven of Portage County is a place where the vulnerable can find not only a meal and a bed, but also hope and long-term healing. We provide a clean and safe environment as an overnight shelter with meals, showers, laundry services and basic personal accessories such as hygiene items, pajamas, and underwear. We coordinate efforts with community services such as Ohio Means Jobs, rehabilitation programs, housing programs, mental health assistance, and spiritual guidance when requested.
