Our volunteers are what make Haven possible. From joining our Cooperative Volunteer Program and living with us here at Haven Catskills Campground, to participating in our Volunteer Corps. or Haven Ambassador Program.

Haven for Humanity is here to build sustainable, healthy communities. Together, we hope to demonstrate that we can live the way Nature intended for us to live. We believe that by using high technology objectively, we can quickly transition ourselves to a comfortable and sustainable lifestyle that can change the lives of all future generations. In order for our plan to succeed, we must educate the public as to how to most efficiently use tools and technology to their advantage. We strategically avoid the creation of unnatural dependencies and promote an addiction-free lifestyle, while growing people's creative capacities and natural strengths. To speak in broader terms, we use high technology for what it was destined to do; building healthy and sustainable neighborhoods. We will partner with people and businesses alike in order to promote natural living, strong community networks and sustainable technologies throughout the world. We will start with our pilot location, 'Haven Catskills Campground' in the small town of Livingston Manor, New York.

Haven for Humanity's aim is to develop community-sponsored, neighborhood support centers that can be recreated and established in any intentional-community around the world. Our goal is to provide a safe and nurturing environment where each individual’s health, well-being, and happiness is a top priority, as we work together, to rediscover our natural human potential.
