Haven was founded in late 2008 and launched in 2009 by Leslie Buckley and his wife Carmel.  Leslie's business interests brought him to Haiti for the first time in 2004. Appalled by the conditions in which the people of Haiti were and are living in, he set up Haven. 

Haven was initially founded to provide housing and shelter to communities in rural Haiti. However, since the devastating earthquake hit Haiti's capital city, Port au Prince, on January 12th, 2010, Haven has been working in affected areas providing emergency relief to those most in need.
