Haven of Rest Ministries exists to see those bound by life-dominating problems “rescued, restored, and released” while experiencing the love of the Lord Jesus Christ. In October 1960, Haven of Rest Rescue Mission was founded as a place for homeless men to receive food, shelter, and help. It was started by a group of Christian businessmen who were concerned about the homeless wandering the streets in Anderson. The ministry began in a small building with 6 donated bunk-beds. Today, Haven of Rest is a Christ-centered ministry that provides hope, healing, and recovery for men and women facing life-dominating problems, such as homelessness and addiction. The Haven has grown to accommodate an average of 90 men and women in its facilities. Programs are free of charge to men and women who need help.
