Give a Gift of Hope This Holiday Season.
Dear Friend of Haven for Hope,
With the holidays upon us, will you help us bring the magic of the season to the hundreds of children who currently call Haven for Hope home? Not just for the holidays but for every day!
With over 1,700 clients, staff and partner staff on our 22-acre campus, the activity at Haven never stops. We never slow down because there is always a family or a client in need of a safe harbor or a helping hand, and we are here to serve and support them in their time of need. Despite the unprecedented challenges presented by the pandemic, the winter storm or the increase in people experiencing homelessness, Haven has been here to help those in our community who need us.
During the holidays it seems unbearably disruptive to be deprived of your own home and surrounded by all that is familiar. At Haven for Hope, we strive to provide stability and normalcy for our clients. We make sure the holidays at Haven deliver a time of magic for our children, a place of welcome and safety for our clients and most of all, a sense of hope for the future. When asked about spending the holidays at Haven for Hope, one of our young clients said the following:
The holidays here are really nice. The presents were unexpected! I didn’t think I would get what I actually asked for, but the presents were great! All the things they do here for us during the holidays have a way of brightening things up. I like the holidays at Haven. – Chris, age 16
Your help is essential to our efforts, and we invite you to consider making a gift today in honor of family, friends, colleagues or in memory of someone special. This season we are asking for your help in raising $35,000 so our Haven clients and their families can experience the warmth, security, wonder and hope of the season.
We hope you will join us in our mission to bring the joy of the holidays and the promise of new beginnings to those experiencing homelessness. At Haven for Hope, we are changing lives and building futures…one person, one child, one family at a time. Thank you for your support!
