You can help change a disadvantaged child’s life this Christmas!
Beginning the Friday after Thanksgiving and throughout the entire month of December, our campuses become a Christmas wonderland for boys and girls who might not experience a lot of Christmas joy at home. It might be because they've been removed from their homes as a result of abuse or neglect. They might live with a single parent who is struggling to make ends meet, or parents who have experienced job loss and there simply isn't enough money to go around.
We believe every child deserves a Merry Christmas, and we want to make that a reality for these precious kids! A new group of excited kids will join us each weekend for all of our fun camp activities, plus a few Christmas surprises... including a special Christmas dinner and a birthday party for Jesus! Generous donations make it possible for us to give these boys and girls gifts that will help them feel loved and valued. More importantly, we get to teach them about the birth of Jesus - the greatest gift anyone has ever received - and His love for them.
"Thank you for all the presents.
Tell the people who donated the money thank you."
-Jade, Age 12
Thank You for Giving!
How You Can Help:
Help provide a scholarship for a child in need to come to Youth Haven this Christmas! We estimate the cost of providing for a child’s needs for the weekend to be $384. That’s just $32 per month - much less than most people pay for their cable or satellite TV!
