River Haven Shelter

108 E Pleasant St
Portage, WI - 53901

Families with children, individual women, and individual men are welcome at the shelter, though we have a separate shelter for the men.

We do not accept violent individuals or ones with a history of violence.
We also do not accept individuals with a criminal history and felony drug use within the past 3 years.
The maximum number of residents at one time is 16. Thirty days in any one-year period is the maximum stay. However, a stay can be shortened if house rules are broken. Some rules:
No alcohol or smoking allowed on the premises; residents must clean their rooms and community areas; curfew hours and quiet hours also pertain; no visitors are allowed in the house.River Haven Homeless Shelter educates its residents about services such as the food pantry, rental assistance, medical assistance, mental health programs, the food share program, child care, W2, or anything else to help them make better choices.

We also require them to report job search information to a case manager if a resident is not employed but could be. River Haven is staffed 24 hours a day, with a case worker on duty 7 days a week. The case worker makes sure that house rules are followed. The project is always looking for volunteers to act as mentors when the opportunity arises.
