Haven House, a non-profit community based mental health center, was formally housed in a building that we rented from the Commonwealth of PA, on the grounds of Allentown State Hospital but independent of ASH. When PA made the decision to close the entire Allentown State Hospital grounds, they also had to find a new property to house their extensive mental health services. A new space was purchased and renovated and Haven House moved in October of 2012, all without missing one day of services for their clients.
