Our mission: “The Haven shall assist families and individuals in crisis in Transylvania County by providing safe temporary refuge in a clean, comfortable shelter.” We provide respite for those who have suddenly or unexpectedly fallen into homelessness or those who may be chronically homeless. The Haven is a safe, secure place where people can be helped to get back onto their feet.
The Haven Thomas House operates as an 18 bed overnight shelter to
temporarily house single adults that are experiencing homelessness. The co-ed facility has an open dorm room style layout that houses men on one side and women on the other with two corners that are fluid to the needs of our community. The open floor plan at the Haven Thomas House makes it possible for trained volunteers and professional staff to monitor activity throughout the early evening and night.
operates a four bedroom house designed to provide
a safe, secure environment for
families with children. Each family may be provided a bedroom with a shared bathroom with community kitchen, dining, and living areas.
Both shelters have laundry facilities, showers, mail service and telephone messaging services.
The Haven of Transylvania County is located at 240 S. Caldwell Street in Brevard, NC 28712
