Courtyard improvements 2016

The photo above shows the amazing transformation of Chapel Haven’s courtyard.

It’s makeover time at Chapel Haven!

Thanks to the generosity of a family choosing to remain unnamed, Chapel Haven’s courtyard and REACH (Rossman) residential building have received an amazing makeover.

This transformation has created communal spaces that are bright, warm and welcoming, inviting our individuals to rest, socialize and recharge.

The project includes:

  • Renovating the Chapel Haven courtyard with new pavers, landscaping and beautiful outdoor furnishings – making this an attractive place for our students and community members to congregate and socialize
  • Sprucing up the basketball court and replacing what we have with a new, commercial-grade basketball stanchion and hoop.
  • student lounge

    Newly refurbished student lounge

    All new furnishings in the student lounge

  • The creation of a new rec room and gathering space on the first floor of the Rossman residence, with new furnishings, a gaming center, installation of rec-room activities like Ping Pong, large-screen TVs for watching the ball games and other fun activities


Community Life room makeover now includes a rec room for REACH students to enjoy.

  • The installation of brand-new flooring and an attractive new color scheme for the hallways and stairwells of the Rossman residence; replacement of all doors in the building, including and apartment doors and corridors with solid-grain, wooden doors (goodbye, institutional metal doors!) and new signage. The work also includes new lighting to brighten the ground-floor student lounge, rec room and corridors
