At HireHaven, we have a passion for home improvement. From a set of crisp white vinyl windows to new fiber cement siding or a full bathroom remodel, we help homeowners create the dream space they’ve always wanted, and get their project done on time and on budget.

How do we do that? We match homeowners with the perfect local contractors for their project, and then get multiple quotes on their behalf. We handle all the heavy lifting that makes a home upgrade a painful process - that way homeowners can spend less time chasing contractors, and more time dreaming about their home’s upgrade!

The HireHaven Dream Home Design Scholarship enables students to describe their own ideal home improvement project. The scholarship will be awarding one student $1,000 to put towards his or her education. From tuition costs to dining and textbooks, the scholarship money can be used to cover any expenses.
