A Week at Summer Camp can Change a Child’s Life!
“They are very troubled kids but have great potential to be something someday.”
These words could describe so many of the children who come to Youth Haven! In particular, they are the words of a soon-to-be adoptive mother of three children who are scheduled for summer camp at Youth Haven.
The oldest of the three siblings is in fifth grade and has already lived in 11 or 12 homes. The children were removed from their birth home due to domestic violence and drug abuse. They have been in foster care most of their lives, and parental rights were terminated two years ago.
When you support Youth Haven, you give troubled kids a chance to discover their potential to do something great with their lives. Maybe they’ll uncover a hidden talent in arts and crafts, or learn that they’re good at sports. Perhaps the encouraging words of a staff member or teen volunteer will be just what they need to boost their self-confidence. Without a doubt, they’ll hear that God loves them and has a special purpose for them!
Thank you for providing a way for these three children – and hundreds of others like them – to come to Youth Haven this summer. You are helping them become the young men and women God designed them to be!
