In 1997 a dream began with one staff member, a devoted board, and a 4 bedroom home. This faithful group felt the Lords call to offer hope to determined, single mothers and their children caught in difficult circumstances. They humbly stepped out in faith and welcomed the very first family to Midland Fair Havens.
In 2001, Midland Fair Havens experienced full occupancy in its housing facilities. Referrals and requests for services continued to escalate. Recognizing the desperate need for additional housing and services, the Midland Fair Havens Board of Directors initiated the Building a Future for Families capital campaign.
After the building funds were raised, a transitional living community was completed in 2004. This facility houses 12 single mothers with their children and provides space for expanded services to residential and non-residential clients. With the addition of a Family Enrichment Center in 2007, the needs of single mothers and children are being met even more effectively.
