As a creators’ Hub, Haven looks to make it much easier for its members to make their creations. Whether it is being able to facilitate the development of music, such as through Third Eye Wide, or through the connection of individuals to necessary resources, like connecting writers to animators, Haven looks to facilitate the creation of culture.
One Day, a Coop
Providence Haven often refers to itself as a deliberate village, because it looks to inspire a new community and public space for individuals to interact. whether through art, music, or leadership, members are able to connect in a community that is motivated, open to all, and meant to protect ideals.
Currently, Haven Has 6 members who have stated that they would move into a coop facility. We’re looking to have about 8 before moving into a new space.
To begin with we hope for the coop to have, among other things, an open space for writing and meetings, a recording studio for music and audio recording, and a painters cave/sculpture space for a variety of visual and physical art.
We aim to provide an affordable food cooping system so that members of the public can become food coopers and dine with us in this home.
And we aim to foster as much collaboration as possible between members and entities of Providence and the greater surrounding areas. Please join us in creating spaces for individuals to pursue their happiness.

Haven was founded as an impulse and grew to be a group that works to help others keep the flames of their passions lit. We call these passions ideals, or true desires. Oftentimes, it can be incredibly difficult to find a foundation that can let our ideas bear the fruit lying within us. Rather than continuing to leave our friends and future generations floundering for the recognition necessary to feel as though our ideas and passions are valid, Haven exists to create a sanctuary for ideals, so that those who join us and who see our literature and art can realize that they are far more powerful than they’ve been led to believe.
