Watertown pregnancy center searching for executive director

April 12, 2023

Watertown, S.D. – Haven Center, a newly developing pregnancy center in Watertown, has chosen a location and begun accepting applications for their Executive Director.

For the past 8 months, a steering team has been working to open a pregnancy resource center in Watertown. Although there are currently 9 centers in South Dakota, there are none in northeast South Dakota.

“We need to make sure there are resources in our area to help guide women in unplanned pregnancies to choose life,” Michael Wallenmeyer, President of Haven Center Board of Directors said. “Our plan is to continue to walk with these women throughout their pregnancies and beyond, if desired.”

The nine-member committee recently announced their name: Haven Center; created a logo; and secured a location: 611 6th Street Southeast in Watertown.

“Our next step is to find an Executive Director,” Wallenmeyer said. “This person will be responsible for overseeing the administration, management, program development, strategic planning, marketing, fundraising, and community outreach for Haven Center.”
