The Haven of Rest mission was founded in 1960 to provide shelter, food and clothing to homeless men in the Anderson, South Carolina area. That ministry has now grown to include three in-house ministry areas and eight thrift stores.
The Haven of Rest ministries is a non-profit, tax exempt, non-denominational organization. The ministries are supported by monetary and other charitable contributions.
The goal of the ministry is that every participant will desire to give his or her life to Christ and turn to Him for freedom from addictions and hope for the future.
