For thirty-six years Ascension Place, Inc. now known as Haven Housing has provided women in crisis or transition with a stable environment and the opportunity to explore options for their future. We have done this through three programs in Hennepin County:
- St. Anne’s Place, an emergency shelter for women-led families experiencing extreme poverty and homelessness
- Ascension Place, a transitional housing program where women stabilize, recover and rebuild their lives
- Next Step Housing, a permanent supportive housing program for women and women-led families working to maintain housing stability.
