One Hopeful Place is happy to be opening our doors at the first building of One Hopeful Place. It will affectionately be named “The Haven”. The Haven will offer shelter, limited meal services, and life-skills-counseling to the (maximum 10) men who are residents, for up to 180 days. Our staff will provide assistance with obtaining valuable employment in order to help these men become stable in housing, thus enriching their own lives.The Haven will also provide the much needed resources for Okaloosa County’s homeless population to connect them with valuable resources in one location.The Haven will also provide the homeless in our area with the ability to shower, and wash and dry their clothing.The Haven will serve as Okaloosa County’s main Cold Night Shelter, offering cold night shelter to men and women during the winter months when temperatures fall below 40 degrees. It will also provide shelter when temperatures rise above 100 degrees in the summer months.

These are some of the basic pantry staples that will provide nutrition
to some VERY thankful men from our own community:

Fruits and vegetables such as oranges, apples, bananas, lettuce, tomatoes, celery, cucumbers, and potatoes.
Dairy products such as milk, cheese, eggs, cottage cheese, sour cream, and yogurt.
Frozen dinners and frozen burritos, ham and lunch meat.
Drinks such as juice, coffee, tea, and bottled water.
Pasta such a noodles, macaroni and cheese, rice, canned soup, ramen noodles, and dry mix soup.
Bread, bagels, muffins, and cake would also be appreciated.
Salty snack foods such as potato chips and pretzels.
Paper products such as toiletries or garbage bags.

If you would like to volunteer at The Haven please call 850-586- 7879.
