|Holden Bowker – Executive Director
Holden Bowker has been with Haven Canada since 2002. Prior to accepting the position of Executive Director, Holden travelled for 27 years with his brother Mel performing two-piano concerts across North America under the incredibly creative name of “The Bowker Brothers”! He has also served on staff at Tsawwassen Alliance Church as part-time worship pastor. His greatest love now that he is officially a “senior” is enjoying his 6 grandchildren!
|Richard Dendy – Assistant Executive Director
Richard has recently joined the Haven staff with the intent of transitioning into the Executive Director role under the mentorship of Holden Bowker. Although possessing an extensive background in the business world (having spent 30 years with BMO in commercial banking), Richard has always had a heart for ministry as evidenced by his former role on our Haven Board of Directors. He and his wife Shani live in Tsawwassen, BC and have one son.
|Deborah Graham – Office Manager/Finances
Deborah joined the Haven team in 2005 and wears a number of hats. As well as assuming responsibility for the smooth functioning of our office, she handles all our finances, does data entry, oversees our shipping department, and is often the welcoming voice you hear when calling our office. Deborah and her husband Jim make their home in Tsawwassen, BC and have two grown daughters.
|Joyleene Yu – Administrative Assistant/Web Administrator
Joyleene joined Haven part-time in 2016. She assists Deborah with administrative duties and cares for all the back-end administration of our website. Having her Masters in Applied Science from UBC, Joyleene also works part-time as an engineer. She makes her home in Richmond, BC.
|Sharisse Dalby – Graphic Design/Events Coordinator
Sharisse has been with Haven since 2010 and, like all our staff, also multi-tasks. Her roles include graphic design, promotions, coordinating events, IT services, and receptionist. Her time at Haven is limited to a part-time role as she is the mother of three young boys, including twins!
|Vicki Bowker – Prayer and Concern Ministry
Vicki Bowker predates all of us at Haven, having been “recruited” in 1985 to launch our first Prayer and Concern Ministry. From 2005-2011 she took a hiatus to serve as Children’s Pastor at Peace Portal Alliance Church in White Rock, BC before rejoining the team. Currently she works part-time while holding down another part-time job as office administrator at Tsawwassen Hearing Clinic.
