History

Emmaus Haven of Venango is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.

In June 2016, Emmaus Haven of Venango embarked on two essential and successful partnerships to begin
their non-profit organization debt free. One was with the Venango County Human Services’ Housing Department
(VCHS) and one was with Mustard Seed Missions (MSM) of Venango County.

                                         Emmaus Haven obtained and refurbished a building located at 1269 Liberty Street in Franklin, PA.                                                                Mustard Seed Missions provided the majority of the work to remodel the interior of the third floor apartments.                                                            Emmaus Haven then rented that space to VCHS for its Bridge Housing Program. There are three apartments                                                         which can house two people each. The Bridge Housing Program is for those that are in a homeless situation                                and this County program assists them in transitioning into permanent housing.

                            Emmaus Haven of Venango has also refurbished a former parish hall at 580 Colbert Avenue in Oil City, PA.                                                            This property had been vacant for several years and needed internal and external modifications to safely                                      accommodate up to 16 beds for homeless adult males.
