Her Haven was thrilled to launch Her Haven with the Student Chapter of ASID at Fairfield University.
We wish to thank our student volunteers for all of their hard work, especially the two amazing Project Managers! We will forever be grateful to them for their dedication, commitment, love and compassion as we laid the groundwork and paved the way for future projects.

Dolan School of Business
Her Haven was used as the case study for the semester long Nonprofit Entrepreneurship class at Fairfield University’s Dolan School of Business, instructed by Board member Dr. Catherine Giapponi. Guest speakers instructed in areas of accounting, law and fundraising, and 20 students worked hard to research and present their business plan at the end of the semester. We are so grateful to Dr. Giapponi for her introduction of this class, and to the students who worked so hard to submit thorough, well-researched and thoughtful plans to help our fledgling nonprofit be a success.
Her Haven was proud to partner with Habitat for Humanity of Coastal Fairfield County for our two projects in 2012.
Habitat’s vision of “a world where everyone has a decent place to live” resonates strongly with Her Haven. After the new homeowners committed over 500 hours of sweat equity to put up foundations, walls and a roof, Fairfield University’s design students were thrilled to help convert their houses into homes through the gift of design.
The talented students of the Shintaro Akatsu School of Design at the University of Bridgeport designed and renovated a 12 bed residence under the Recovery Network of Programs. RNP provides residential services for women living with co-occurring disorders and histories of trauma. The facility is a beautiful Victorian home in Bridgeport, CT.
