Haven for Humanity -501(c)(3) Nonprofit Organization
Livingston Manor, New York
Haven strives to incorporate hands-on, experiential education with philosophy and "integrative design", into every Haven Project. We also work to provide educational materials, events, classes and workshops for all-ages, which build upon Haven's Tenets. We aim to use "integrative design" to solve immediate crises in a community, and provide the proper education to illustrate why and how the crisis occurred, and how we can work together to prevent it from ever happening again.
Anyone can come up with projects and programs to help locals in need and Haven is here to make these ideas come to life in a way that is sustainable and educational. This could mean providing artisans with a place to sell their sustainable goods, healers with a place to perform their healing arts, or health chefs with a kitchen to feed the needy. It could mean providing a safe space for you and your friends to gather, take a class, do artwork or play music. It could also mean assisting community members with funding opportunities for their community support ventures or using renewable energy to make existing businesses more environmentally friendly. The possibilities are truly endless.
We aim to provide the resources to turn great ideas, into sustainable non-profit ventures that benefit everyone in the community. All the while educating volunteers, employees and interested community members of all-ages in the ways of integrative well-being, beloved community and global sustainability. Click to read more!

Every dollar that Haven receives is reinvested into the non-profit structure of Haven for Humanity. Our top executives receive no financial compensation for their work with individuals and communities in the name of Haven for Humanity. We believe that your money is hard-earned and valuable, so the donations we receive are treated with the utmost respect and gratitude. Every penny we are given is a vote for healthy, peaceful and sustainable business practices. Haven for Humanity uses its Guiding Tenets to create educational community projects which provide sustainable and ethical jobs, as well as produce high-quality goods and services, based on the needs of the local community. Every penny we get is a vote for justice. Every penny we get brings us closer to a cultural identity that we can be proud of and a future that is built on abundant renewable resources. Every penny we get is a vote to prevent and reverse disease, to protect those we love, and to be a part of a sustainable, peaceful, healthy and loving world. You can let Haven Staff decide how to best prioritize your contributions, or you can restrict your contribution to be used for a specific Haven Program.
Haven for Humanity is dedicated to truth, peace and transparency throughout everything we do.

Haven is founded and administered by individuals following a minimalist, integrative lifestyle, in order to keep our team happy, healthy and productive for our community.

To inspire harmony with Nature, through educational community projects, services and events.
The more we cooperate and integrate together harmoniously, the more of a synergy we will experience, where our combined efforts will improve the quality of all of our lives far beyond what any one of us could accomplish alone.
There are preventable crises happening all around the globe today in the fields of well-being, community and sustainability. The health crises are seen in increasing morbidity rates of our elderly and decreasing lifespan and vitality of our youth. The community crises are seen in increasing suicide and depression rates around the globe and lack of connection to and disintegration of, our bioregional cultures. The sustainability crises can be seen in the exponentially increasing levels of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere and visible smog in our cities, as well as the obvious prevention of renewable energy technologies from becoming norms in our commonly used appliances. Haven for Humanity believes that these crises are all symbiotic and that if we want to work to fix one crises, we must work to fix them all by targeting the root cause; lack of integrative education.
Haven for Humanity is a federally registered 501(c)(3) community support and integrative education non-profit organization whose mission is to inspire harmony with nature through educational business projects, services and events. We work to engage social, environmental and humanitarian justice by incorporating free education into all of our Haven Projects. A Haven Project is any business, group, event or service that has met criteria for positive impact in the areas of integrative well-being (holistic health), beloved community and global sustainability. Working in these three areas simultaneously has been shown to have a synergistic effect, where the sum total of our efforts is much greater than if we were to target one area at a time. Haven for Humanity is operated with volunteer support and partnerships with communities and existing businesses. The more we give, the more we get.
While people all around the globe are experiencing similar crises, we would like to use this section to talk specifically about the home of our headquarters here in Sullivan County NY. Sullivan County is rated number 61 of 62 in positive health outcomes for all of New York state. There is heavy alcohol and drug use over the entire county with overdose death tolls higher than ever before. Areas in Sullivan are considered "Food Deserts" by the USDA because of little or no access to local food. As a huge number of people migrated away from this area in the '90s, the remaining community was left to pick up the tax bill. This, along with high utility and grocery bills, makes it impossible for people to break out of poverty or spend their time doing anything but working. The best things for us have become the hardest to acquire, and the worst things for us have become as readily available as dirt. Haven is here to target the cause of the issue by providing the integrative education required to not only stop current crises, but prevent their recurrence in the future.
