The Haven Growth Fund

The Haven massage therapy was founded by David and his wife Janiecia Johnson on May 22, 2018. David served in the U.S. Army for 8 years until he broke his lower back. The pain that he went through for many years up until his surgery in 2015 gave him the passion to help the community alleviate pain and lead healthier lives through massage therapy. David Johnson and his wife left to Florida without a home or much money with 2 baby girls, a son on the way, and a passion to create a better purpose. David attended the Pensacola School of Massage and Health Careers where he made the Dean's list and excelled at his skill. After moving back to Colorado Springs David and Janiecia realized that many health and wellness studios were not offering all they could to really help their clients and employees and that inspired them even more to create a wellness studio, a haven, where the community can come and really get a peace of mind and let the worries of the world roll off of their backs. Janiecia's eleven years of customer relations plus David's gifts, and their passion for humanity The Haven was brought into existence. 3 years later we have been blessed with a 2,080 Sq ft store front and time to come up with the funds to have a successful start in the new space. We would love to be apart of our community for many years and give back one hundred times more not only through health and wellness but also help our community financially and through the giving of our time and hard work. Being a Minority and veteran lead business we have had a hard time receiving financial support for our vision  through many investors, loan, and grant programs and have not been able to do this without the help of our community and those who have supported us since 2018. We are asking for $45,000 to purchase equipment such as a steam room and sauna, overhead expenses, and other start up costs. Even if you can't give financially but you can help another way please reach out to us. We are so grateful for the opportunity to be here for our community and your support means the world to us. The open date is proposed to be October 1st given that the space will be finished and ready to move in. BBVA will be hosting our Grand opening and we would love everyone to stop by to take part in celebrating the success. Thank you everyone!  Website
