We Make a Difference

What We Do


We Serve primarily children referred by the foster care & juvenile justice systems,
private parties, counseling networks, churches & schools.

Ages 6 through 18 for basic care services

Our Community is at the heart of Girls’ Haven. From the beginning a product
of this community, through our 25 years: you have poured in your time, heart,
gifts, and funds.​

Our Funding comes primarily through community donations and grants; only 33%
of our funding comes from the state.​

Your Gifts Allow Us to Fight for Our Kids, giving them much more than food and shelter.​

Our Success shows itself over time:​

In the Short Term as our kids realize their own worth and the value of others, they become leaders in their areas of influence and a blessing to the world around them​

In the Long Term as they form their own families and carry the values and truths
they’ve learned at Girls’ Haven into adulthood, creating generational change​

We Are Grateful as we look to the future knowing we can continue to trust you, our community, to include us in your story
