The Haven is a charitable not-for-profit organisation, which was established in 1947. The establishment of The Haven can be attributed to the vision of Mr E.V Roberts who was the owner of the local radio station, 2WG.
Mr Roberts purchased 18.5 acres of land in Bourke Street, Wagga Wagga and in 1951 handed the land to the 2WG Women's Club whose members commenced fundraising for the development of The Haven's Self-Care Retirement Village.
The Women's Club played a vital role in the development of The Haven.
