Haven of Rest’s Women’s Auxiliary was started in November 1944 for the purpose of raising funds for Mission needs for which support may not be available.
The Auxiliary meets the first Tuesday of each month in the Mission’s Dining Room. Women of all ages are welcome. Come anytime between 10 a.m. and noon for browsing and shopping in the Auxiliary gift shop. There is no charge for lunch, which is served at noon. A free-will offering is collected after lunch for the current Auxiliary project and to help defray meal costs. The Auxiliary program begins at 1:00 p.m. in the Main Chapel.
Over the years, the Auxiliary has supported many worthwhile projects for the Mission. Recently they shared the cost of replacing the dining room floor, water fountains, and security door, with the newest project being the carpeting for the main offices.
Haven of Rest’s Women Auxiliary recognizes outstanding women who exemplify the values and ideals of the Mission. Last year in November 2021, Carol Lo was named the Auxiliary’s ‘Women of the Year.’ Carol is faithful in her service to the Auxiliary and the Mission. She has volunteered in numerous areas, currently in the kitchen.
