Christ's Haven For Children is a nonprofit organization centered around the core values of normalcy, dignity, and hope. We provide a trauma-informed, family model of care for displaced children, teens, and young adults.
As a voluntary placement organization, we are an option outside of traditional foster care, often when a caregiver has exhausted all efforts to care for a child. Whether a child is with us for six months or sixteen years, we utilize that time loving them as our own and instilling normalcy, dignity, and hope into their lives.

Family Resource Center
At Christ's Haven, we are an option outside of traditional foster care. Family members are able to place their children with us when they are no longer able to provide appropriate care often due to abuse, neglect, or financial strain. Our goal is to come alongside and provide safety, love, and consistency in the hope that families can become healthy and whole again.
A married couple lives in each of our homes as houseparents with up to eight children and teens. They are responsible for meeting all of the daily needs - providing food, childcare, medical care, counseling, tutoring, and stability. An essential component of our model of care is children and their houseparents operating as a family unit. They guide and provide each aspect of their family life including schooling, meals, extracurricular activities, healthcare, entertainment, spiritual direction, etc.
College & Career Readiness:
We don't believe at age 18 anyone should be expected to figure out how to launch into adulthood on their own. Our College & Career Readiness Programs offer an alternative for children who would otherwise age out of the foster care system. Beginning their junior year of high school and for up to five years in their post-secondary education, the teens and young adults in this program are provided with housing, transportation, tuition support, and access to critical tools and skills needed as they launch into adulthood. All while they gain independence and maturity with someone supporting and cheering them along.
Family Resource Center:
All families go through challenging times. The Family Resource Center is Christ's Haven's newest program, which was created to stand in the gap for local families in need of support. Families receive resources including food, counseling, foster placement needs, and educational opportunities.
