Kids today are hurting, confused, and isolated like never before. Many of them face abuse, neglect, or violence in their homes on a daily basis. Others wonder when they’ll get their next meal or have clean clothes to wear. Some have been shifted from one foster home to another, with no stability or lasting relationships in their lives. The past year has only added to their fears and insecurities.
Because faithful friends like you have continued to stand with us, we have been able to keep serving disadvantaged children at a time when schools have been forced to close and many other resources have been limited.
Your help enabled us to develop new programs to meet the needs of kids and share the Gospel message with them - programs like a safe and fun kids’ website at havenforkids.fun, an expanded mail ministry with care packages and engaging mail pieces for kids, a Birthday Brigade program, virtual summer camp, and the Youth Haven Adventure Club. And we have continued to welcome kids to our campuses whenever health and safety guidelines allowed.
This summer, we’re incredibly excited to take kids “Into the Wild,” a safari-themed adventure with Moses, Aaron, and the Israelites. They’ll learn about God’s amazing rescue when His people felt like they had no hope... and how He later sent Jesus to provide our ultimate rescue.
Now more than ever, kids need hope for the future. With your gifts to Youth Haven, you are giving them that hope. Thank you!
