“Hope” = a feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen. I love Hope Haven because our sole mission is to give hope to those who don’t think they have a chance to be productive in society...I am proud to be a part of this. Haven = a place of safety or refuge. I love Hope Haven because we also provide an environment that that is a safe place where people can flourish. I want people to know Hope Haven is not just a nonprofit organization, but it’s a Ministry and I love working here.” - Eric Witherspoon
