Our Passion at HavenOne is to See Lives Changed!

It is our heart and passion to make a lasting impact in lives for eternity! Every person has value and God given talents and abilities. For many, these have been deeply buried under their addiction and abuse. Through the power of Jesus, the cycle of addiction and abuse will finally be broken over the course of our long term faith-based program.


Our Story


I simply said yes to the call of God upon my life to begin the work of rebuilding shattered lives torn apart by addiction and abuse...

It began in 2005. I had this murky perception of children in desperate need. As the years drifted by a direction for HavenOne came into focus as the Lord developed in me a vision to break the cycle of addiction and abuse. That vision is now progressively becoming a reality! God is equipping me through countless hours of prayer, research and perseverance for the task of creating this ministry from the ground up.

There are no words great enough to describe the God we serve! He has been, is, and will be at the center of everything we do at HavenOne. What a privilege it is to be His hands and feet to

accomplish His purposes for this ministry.
