Mission & Purpose

Youth Haven's mission is to provide life-changing, Christ-centered experiences for disadvantaged children.

Youth Haven is committed to meeting the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of disadvantaged children. This includes boys and girls living in foster care, single-parent families, or low-income homes, as well as children who have experienced abuse, neglect, gang violence, or even a parent in prison.

Our free weekend and summer camps, Kids' Club after school programs, and follow-up programs give troubled kids a chance to get away from their difficult circumstances and have fun with other kids their age. They learn they are loved, valued, and have the potential to do something great with their lives. Most importantly, they discover God loves them, created them for a purpose, and will never leave them, no matter what they might be going through.

At Youth Haven, hurting children find hope. And it's life-changing!

Breaking the Cycle

"The state is always wondering how we can break this cycle of dysfunctional families, abuse, and hurting children in the system... and places like Youth Haven are how we do that." 

-Courtney, Agency Partner

You Can Help!

Youth Haven was established in 1968 as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that does not receive state or federal funding. The children we serve would not be able to go to camp if they were required to pay for their stay, so we provide these experiences to them free of charge. Love gifts from financial supporters help provide over 3,000 scholarships for less fortunate children to attend Youth Haven's programs each year.

Your gift to Youth Haven provides disadvantaged children with...

  • A safe and fun environment

  • A variety of engaging activities

  • Clothing, shoes, personal hygiene items, school supplies, and toys as needed
