Family Haven Emergency Shelter

Family Haven is a five-unit emergency shelter for families experiencing homelessness in the Grand Rapids area. The shelter keeps mothers, fathers, sons, and daughters – entire families – together in clean and private housing units, with the hope of moving them to permanent housing in 30 days. ICCF believes all persons are created in God’s image and exist in the light of His love. Because of this, all families are treated with respect and dignity.
