Welcome to Friendship Haven

Friendship Haven is a nonprofit continuing care community. Our community is a special place to participate, share and grow. Pursue your passions, stimulate your mind, and join a club or volunteer. Be prepared to have fun with friendly neighbors.

We offer a continuum of care for the Fort Dodge and surrounding communities. We provide many different living options for the senior community such as actively aging lifestyles in our independent living apartments and townhomes, assisted living with the right amount of support, extra support in our Simpson Health Center, and Dementia and Alzheimer’s care in our Journey’s building.
