Every day, Haven of Rest provides hundreds of hot, nutritious meals to homeless and poor men, women and children. A meal is often the first contact we have with a person in need of help. It’s our opportunity to show them that they can find hope and achieve a better life. Christmas is a day when we serve more of these individuals than any other day of the year. It is also a chance for Haven of Rest to let communities know about the problems facing homeless and needy men, women and children each day.
