The Haven of Rest is a homeless shelter that serves men, woman and children in the Akron area. They serve 3 meals per day, 7 days a week to the areas homeless. Genesis got involved in May of 2018. Every Thursday evening groups of Genesis employees donate 2.5 hours of their time at the shelter. Groups number between 6 and 15 people depending on the work that needs done that evening. We set up for and serve meals, wash dishes and work in the kitchen. Since May 17th Genesis employees have donated over 183 hours in service to the areas homeless.


On 6/2/18 17 Genesis employees donated a total of 90 hours on a Saturday volunteering at Camp Carl’s Project Ed Bear. A camp for children with cancer. During this event Genesis set up craft tables and worked with the children to make crafts that would provide them with things to take home and remember their camping experience.


From the beginning, on May 17th through today, Genesis employees have donated over 310 hours of their time helping those in need.
