If the First Annual Fundraising Dinner and Auction is any measure of things to come, Friends of the Haven (FOH) has a lot to look forward to. The FOH’s mission is to provide financial and volunteer support to further the activities of The Haven and The Baby Haven whose charter is to provide a safe and empowering Therapeutic Community for pregnant women and their infant children where women can recover from addictions and co-occurring illnesses; deliver healthy, drug-free infants; improve parenting skills; and become self-sufficient, confident, and productive members of the community which will lead to increased public safety and reduction of recidivism.

Terrance Carroll, former Speaker of the Colorado House of Representatives, playfully joked how his visit to The Haven made him feel he could be an uncle, not a father, as his paternal instincts were triggered. His support of the work of The Haven and Baby Haven rallied and unified the 200+ guests during the event, familiar faces Mary Louise Lee-Hitchcock, First Lady of Denver and Founding Board Member Peggy Montano were in attendance.
