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.
