Homeless Shelter Serving Van Wert County

Homelessness in Van Wert County is real.

Our need in Van Wert County is greater than the surrounding 5 counties combined, according to the Northwest Ohio Community Action Commission. On average, there are 30-40 Van Wert County community members experiencing homelessness on any given day. Some are employed. Some are as young as 18. Homelessness in rural communities looks different than in big cities. It could mean living in a car, “couch surfing”, extended stays in hotels. Haven of Hope is here to make a difference in Van Wert County and help those in need get back on their feet.

Do you feel called to help? Reach out. 

Need a place to stay?

If you are in crisis, without a place to stay and need assistance, we are here to help.

Haven of Hope Purpose

The Haven of Hope Shelter of Van Wert County is a community of Christians who have come together to help displaced men in Van Wert County by providing a place to stay and ongoing guidance to obtain the  resources necessary to embrace the next chapter of their lives.
