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 much different than it does in larger cities. It could mean living in a car, “couch surfing”, or 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.

Get Involved

There are many ways to help us in our mission. Beyond making a donation or offering to volunteer, we ask that you:

  • Pray. Above all else, please pray for our homeless community, our board of directors, our volunteers, and our community.
  • Invite us to speak at events. The best way for us to tell our story and educate the public is to tell the story of Haven of Hope. Fill out the form on our contact page to get started.
  • Follow us on Facebook. We want to be transparent with our mission and will be sharing updates, needs, and success stories. Don’t miss the good news!
  • Donate. Our ministry is completely funded by monetary donations. We would not be able to serve the homeless men of Van Wert County without the help of our generous donors.
  • Volunteer. Opportunities include providing a meal, cleaning the shelter, or simply spending time with our guests.
