HANNAH’S HAVEN STAFF
Bonnie Harris, Founder and Director
I was raised with an alcoholic father who beat my mom and had numerous affairs. We lived in an old house with no running water or bathroom. The Lord found me in 1983, but in 1987 my husband came home and told me he didn’t want me anymore. That hurt deeply and I turned to drugs, which led me down a road of destruction. Since August 1993, after a DUI and rehab, I have been clean from drug use and alcohol.
God called me to open a home for women and gave me a vision through a dream to call the home Hannah’s Haven. Hannah was a barren woman, who after crying out to God, the Lord remembered her. That was the message God wanted me to carry to hurting women; that God has not forgotten them, but He remembers them and he has a purpose for their lives.
Tiffany Nettles – Operations Manager
Hannah’s Haven Graduate
I am a graduate of Hannah’s Haven through my own struggles and freedom, I developed a strong desire to see other women set free. After completing the first phase I went to work for Asheboro Dermatology and served on the board of directors as vice president. In September 2021 the Lord called me to ministry I originally applied to be a resident advocate, but the Lord had other plans. I have the heart to serve in God’s kingdom and see women set free!
Wittney Tucker, Program Manager
I’ve lived in Florida my whole life, but the Lord called me out of my comfort zone and into this ministry. The Lord put Teen Challenge on my heart right before I graduated from college, so I asked Him to reveal to me which location He wanted me to serve at. Not long after that, I knew that this was the place where God would use me and it was up to me to stay comfortable or walk in obedience to Him. Needless to say, I chose the second option!
When I was a baby, I was found crawling in traffic and because of that, my grandparents raised me (they both passed away). Growing up I was molested by an older cousin, so I grew up not knowing my identity and not knowing how to love myself. As I got older I learned the importance of forgiveness. I chose to forgive my cousin and I began the process of healing. Now I know my identity in Christ and I want other women to know theirs as well!
I’m so grateful that I get to serve this ministry.
Heather Sheene, Resident Tech
I grew up in a chaotic family full of addiction and dysfunction. I found myself submerged in a lifestyle that was following the same pattern, but then my Hero pulled me out of the pit and true to His character, God restored me and gave me beauty for my ashes. I was given two of the most beautiful gifts the Lord has ever given me when I became a mama and then my husband and my girls walked with me in my call to ministry for years. I found myself lost when I came away from the organization that I was working with for nearly a decade…
But here comes my Hero again and He pursued me and led me to Hannah’s Haven. I felt much like Hannah in the Bible when “He remembered me”. I’m excited to be a part of this team, which feels so much like a family to me. I cannot wait to see what the Lord has in store for me within this ministry and how He plans to use me here. I have such a passion to breathe life into those that are hopeless and to be the midwife to those that are full of purpose from God, but that has been so defeated and beaten by the world and the enemy that they don’t recognize their potential. To Him be all the Glory!
