Pandemic Response

Due to the unprecedented nature of the pandemic, we give charities such as this one the opportunity to share the story of COVID's impact on them. Charities may submit their own pandemic responses through their nonprofit portal.


Havenhouse St. Louis reported being impacted by COVID-19 in the following ways:
  • Program Delivery

  • Fundraising Capacity

  • Revenue

  • Grants Received

  • Balance Sheet


How COVID-19 impacted the organization's operations financially:

The fiscal year 2020 was plagued by the COVID-19 pandemic. For nonprofits worldwide, revenue, fundraising, and services declined due to the global shutdown of daily activities. HavenHouse was not immune to these hardships. In particular, the ceasing of elective surgeries by healthcare providers prevented many patients and families from utilizing HavenHouse’s services, and the organization was forced to halt operations for 12 weeks to ensure the safety of its staff and community. The global community continued to reel from the effects of COVID-19 throughout 2020 and beyond. Revenue from fiscal 2020 reflects these setbacks, although we were grateful to maintain all staff members and to continue operations once it was safe again to do so. For this reason, combined with the overwhelmed healthcare system and subsequent downtick of non-COIVID patients, net income for fiscal 2020 was ($109,788).


How COVID-19 impacted the organization's delivery of programs:

Like other businesses, in the initial stage of the pandemic, HavenHouse was forced to close for 12 weeks. During that time, staff continued to work remotely to assist families in need, even though most elective medical procedures had been cancelled and a majority of medical appointments were taking place by telehealth services. Even those undergoing critical procedures could not have visitors at the hospital, so the need for HavenHouse lodging services decreased. At that time we also stopped transporting clients to appointments due to their often compromised immune systems. We had to also stop utilizing the services of in-person volunteers. In June 2020 the agency once again began offering in-person services with increased safety protocols, which for most clients meant very limited contact with HavenHouse staff and shorter than normal stays.


How this organization adapted to changing conditions caused by COVID-19:

Our current hotel model allows us to focus on customer service and responding to all of these individual needs that we simply couldn’t execute in the past. The hotel provides us with so much in the way of housekeeping, kitchen facilities, and management that we are able to provide an enhanced level of care that is sorely needed at this time. This is a lesson we will take into the future as we add back our beloved volunteers as well as more meals, staff, transportation, and other support services.


Innovations the organization intends to continue permanently after the pandemic:

And yet…. HavenHouse continues to serve. Throughout this unpredictable time, we continue to support clients and their families, providing lodging, food and any other support requested. We have the capacity and are prepared. Families need HavenHouse now more than ever due to the continually changing landscape of medical care and navigating those systems. Many are still not able to accompany their loved ones to the hospital. Policies differ from hospital to hospital and they are changing all the time. We are seeing clients with more complex and serious issues because so many had to or chose to delay their medical care. Many don’t feel safe traveling. Families have more questions than ever. They need information, they need a respite and they need support.
