For anyone wishing to stay, it is required that you first stop at the Meadville Police Station at 894 Diamond Park. Clearance from criminal warrants is required upon check-in.
We are always grateful for the generosity of out local donors. However, we are limited on space for storage and often need monetary donations more than household and clothing donations. Please feel free to call the Haven to discuss this if you have items you wish to donate.
We prepare a hot meal for our guests each evening. This service is provided from donations as well. Please consider preparing a meal or sponsoring one. If you are interested, please call the Haven to discuss and schedule. This is a wonderful way for those in the community to support the Haven and to get involved.
"I like being at St. James (Haven). Being there has helped me move from being homeless to having a job as a manager. It has given me an opportunity to have a stable living situation while helping others and giving me the time to take care of things at this point in my life."
"I went from living in my car to having a comfortable and safe place to sleep at night. Staying at St. James has alleviated the fear and anxiety of not knowing what the next night may bring."
Funding for St. James Haven is generated from donations from our community. We receive no government monies. We welcome personal, community, and corporate donors. We are a 501(c)(3) organization so all donations are tax deductible.
Please remember us for charitable donations in fundraising events, funeral donations, and estate planning.
