The Healing Power of Gardening
Dale Klein Kennedy our therapist and Mellissa Koch our Horticulture Therapy Intern have collaborated with Michelle Durham Haven House’s Americorp VISTA to design and implement our very own Therapeutic Garden! Clients will work closely with therapists as they work through their individual healing process and journey towards healing. The garden was made possible by direct donations from The Village Mercantile (Corrales) Just Sprinklers (Rio Rancho), Plants of the Southwest (Albuquerque), Jaynes Corporation, American Fence Company of New Mexico (Albuquerque), and our Rock Star Volunteers, City of Vision Civitans! The fuel to power our phenomenal volunteer workforce was provided by Dion’s Cabezan Location!
Do You Remember What you Did your Senior Year of High School?
Pranks, Senior Photos, Scholarship and College Applications? When Cecilia Dean’s French Teacher told her there was a community service component to her final grade, she immediately thought of HavenHouse. Cecilia’s team agreed. Typically, the classroom focus is on international acts of service, but this year due to a few glitches, the focus shifted closer to home. Through various fundraising efforts with little previous experience, amid the busiest time of their lives, the team was able to raise $200.00 for Haven House.
Purple Purse Passion
When Allstate Agency Owner Jalene Berger decided to volunteer at Haven House, by offering her office as a donation drop off, she decided to go even further. She spearheaded a multi-office Purple Purse donation drive and truly set the bar. Jalene’s leadership and her Allstate Team secured $17,000 on behalf of Haven House leading to the coveted Purple Purse Award.
