I know a lot of you who are reading this are long time supporters and followers of the work going on at the Havens, but I also have many new friends and supporters that have many questions. Although I hate to bore the rest of you with things you already know, I thought I would take some time before I leave to get everyone acquainted with the Havens, their history, and how the whole operation works.
