Who We Are

How We Became Faith Haven House

From the Founder & President, Dareth Jeffers

Since 2013, I have helped serve meals at the Salvation Army in St. Charles. Numerous times, men and women have come for lunch and asked if we knew of any places where they could stay. It has always been difficult to continue to answer no.

I began to pray for direction on how I could do more. I had always wanted to perpetually volunteer and help others. We don’t always get the chance to decide what that looks like. But if we are still and follow God’s lead, He will give us the direction. We just have to decide to say YES!

Over the following months, I met with others who had already started non-profits for direction.  God not only orchestrated those meetings, but He provided partners who have been helping the homeless for some time already, a name, a logo, and a plan to visit an existing shelter. During the rest of the year and since, there have been numerous lessons in patience and trusting in God’s timing. He continues to send the servant hearted people who are ready and able to help. I will continue to say yes so that homeless men of St. Charles will have a place to stay and a chance to re-build.

Currently, we are starting to help individuals with the resources we have available, and we are working toward obtaining a building to be a fully established and running shelter when God says it’s time.

Our Mission

Why FHH Exists

Faith Haven House will be a place where the residents can start the re-building process. We will be working with homeless men or men in danger of homelessness with the goal to help them transition to a stable living environment. Throughout the transition, they will receive a network of support with available resources.

Our Vision

How we believe God will use FHH.

To have each person we serve be equipped to supporting themselves while showing them the love of Christ.

Statement of Faith

What We Believe

We will be a beacon of light in our community for the homeless and those in danger of homelessness in order to meet their physical and spiritual needs through the love of our savior, Jesus Christ.

“Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.” James 1:12
