Cupcakes for a cause.

Locally crafted with purpose

 

Empowering survivors of domestic & sexual violence, stalking, and human trafficking, by teaching professional baking and kitchen management skills.

A Branch of Help & Emergency Response, Inc. (the HER Shelter)

 

Begun in late 2014 by now Client Services Director Olivia, Sweet Haven was launched from her reflection on the struggle she observed when the ladies she was working with tried to obtain positive and sustainable employment. Sweet Haven is a fully-licensed, professional bakery, equipped to bake 5 dozen cupcakes every 9 minutes. By participating in the program, survivors gain not only tangible kitchen and baking skills, but experience a stretching of their creativity, a greater understanding of teamwork, and that amazing feeling of accomplishing a task and producing stunning results.

When you order a dozen (or 50 dozen) cupcakes from Sweet Haven, the difference you are making is immediate and powerful. Ladies at the HER Shelter spring into action with the guidance and assistance of staff to create amazing desserts for your weddings, birthday parties, baby showers, corporate luncheons, and so much more.
