Our Mission & History
Mission Statement: Haven House Services helps youth be safe, supported and successful.
Haven House Services is the place where youth who need help find it. Founded in 1973, Haven House operates 11 programs that help more than 1,200 youth in need each year overcome their challenges and find a path to success. Whether they are experiencing homelessness, a crisis at home or school, gang involvement, or problems involving the juvenile justice system, we help youth identify their goals, connect with needed resources, and build skills needed for long-term success.
Haven House Services grew out of an incident in 1972 that illuminated the gaps in services for struggling young people in the community.
Who do you serve?
- Each of our programs serves a specific age range. Across all programs, the range is youth ages 6-23 and their families. The majority of youth that we serve are 11-17 years old.

- Haven House Services provides support to youth and their families demonstrating needs in the following areas: Youth in crisis/ Crisis and Homeless Services, Court-involved youth, Youth with challenging behaviors and family issues, Gang-involved youth
Is Haven House Services a House?
- Haven House Services provides a wide range of services for Wake County youth that are delivered through a number of our physical sites, as well as in the homes and communities where youth live. One of those programs is Wrenn House, a crisis shelter that provides short term intervention for youth who are in crisis and/or for families in need of respite. Haven House Services no longer offers group home services.
