Hedwig’s Haven is a Harry Potter based fan group that takes place on Facebook and Discord. Designed for adult Potterheads to celebrate their love for the wizarding world while making friends and having fun, it has evolved to be an escape from the muggle-world for many around the world. It was founded on March 29, 2020 by Shalane Hutchins and became public on April 1, 2020.
Shalane enlisted the help of her fellow Hufflepuff, Beatriz and her real-life friend and Slytherin, Ashley. These three women joined forces, laying the foundation for the group you see now.
Today we have grown to a group of around 1,000 Potterheads and continue to grow and evolve, adding new activities, games and events for all.
Our group could not be possible without the work and dedication of our staff. Minister of Magic is the group leader. Each of our four Hogwarts houses have six staff positions each. They are Founder, Head of House, Professor, Head Boy/ Head Girl, Prefect and Ghost. The top two positions of each house (Founder and Head of House) are the House Admins.
We also have The Order of the Owl, a mini-mod position within our Discord. These are dedicated members who do moderation and assist with games, events and scoring.
