Christian Haven Home

A Community for All

Who Is Christian Haven Home?

Christian Haven Home is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization governed by a board of directors who are appointed by our supporting churches. We have 52 rooms, with three different floor plans to suit each of our resident’s unique needs. Our team of dedicated staff is equipped to handle a variety of resident care needs with an on-site licensed nurse and 24-hour care staff. We’re also grateful to our vast pool of engaged volunteers, who help us maintain a robust, exciting schedule of daily activities.

A Community for All 

Today, Christian Haven Home continues Mrs. Joseph Oliver’s act of love on a daily basis as our residents, staff, volunteers, and families share their lives here. We work hard to make our home a true community for each and every one of our residents. From our homemade meals to our exceptional range of daily activities, it doesn’t take much time to see that Christian Haven is a special place to live and to work.

Our History 

Christian Haven Home began as an act of love when Mrs. Joseph Oliver donated the property at Pennoyer Avenue and Seventh Street in the city of Grand Haven to be a Home for the Aged in honor of her late husband, Mr. Schupe. From there, area Reformed and Christian Reformed Churches came together to found Christian Haven Home, and our doors opened in 1961. Our residents today come from a variety of churches, and we welcome residents of all faiths.
