Give a Man a Fish – Teach a Man to Fish


Through distribution of food, clothing, emergency relief, and training programs, Sommer Haven is making a difference.

Rev. Agnes I. Numer, founder of Sommer Haven Ranch International, devoted more than 50 years of her life to fulfilling the vision God gave her to reach the poor throughout the nations of the world.

Agnes, always had a heart to help those in need and as God began sending more and more people to her door, local markets and farmers began to contribute food. It was out of meeting the needs of others that Sommer Haven grew to what it is today: an international organization with distribution and training programs touching hurting lives in a desperate world.

Sommer Haven Ranch International distributes food, clothing, and medical supplies to the needy around the world regardless of race or religion. Sommer Haven trains and equips nationals to meet the needs of their people through agriculture, animal husbandry, education, preventative health care, and food allocation programs.

Sommer Haven seeks corporations, businesses, businessmen, and individuals who share the passion to help the less fortunate around the world. Their donations of food, clothing, medical supplies, resources, and finances will help meet the many opportunities available to Sommer Haven to help the poor.

Sommer Haven is a non-profit organization meeting all the required standards as set forth by the Federal Government.

You can give with confidence knowing that your donation of food, clothing, resources, and finances will help continue distribution and training programs for the poor and needy throughout the nations of the world.


Sommer Haven Ranch International was Formed October 15, 1954, based on the Scriptural revelation of Isaiah 58 given to Rev. Agnes I. Numer. “Is not this the fast that I have chosen? To lose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free and that ye break every yoke?

Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? When thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh?

Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the LORD shall be thy reward.” Isaiah 58:6-8

Sommer Haven has a more than 50 year history of providing resources and training to the needy around the world. Because of this God given success, the demands for Sommer Haven’s help continue to grow.

Tons of donated food are sorted and distributed free of charge to needy children, senior citizens, the homeless, rehabilitation centers, Indian reservations, and to families in crisis… locally, nationally, and internationally.

Sommer Haven is helping meet the food challenges in third world countries by sustainable agriculture, animal husbandry, and water purification. They use the appropriate technology of harvesting, drying, canning, and preserving of food.

Sommer Haven sends teams to developing countries to train and raise up indigenous workers in preventative health care, first aid, hygiene, and nutrition so they can take care of their own community or village.
