Highland Lakes Haven Statement of Purpose
Highland Lakes Haven (HLH), a nonprofit ministry providing housing for the homeless. We work in partnership with people in need of shelter. HLH challenges people of compassion to provide the capital, through tax deductible gifts, to build or renovate simple, decent housing and a community for those whom have none. The housing provided will be multifamily, mini-homes or trailers. For most of our homeless a minimal rent (~$300) will be charged; the monies will be used to pay utilities, etc and continue to grow as the need grows. Most of our homeless will be required to have income; a job, disability, social security, etc.
All Highland Lakes Haven affiliate shelters and programs are governed by a local board of directors that sets up a non-discriminatory residents election process. The housing will be for established and separated for families, single parent, single women and single men. HLH relies heavily on volunteers for construction, administration, maintenance, management, etc. There will be some paid positions for the general operations of HLH, grant writing, accounting, etc. In seeking to build up both the tangible and the spiritual aspects of a community,Highland Lakes Haven proclaims the love of Christ in word and deed and aims always to glorify God.
