Our story is the story of Father James C. Maloney, who saw a need and devoted his entire life to fulfilling it.  While a chaplain at Ormsby Village, a Louisville-area juvenile institution, Father Maloney saw firsthand the problems of high school-aged boys who lacked proper home and educational opportunities. He saw boys who were unloved, unwanted and terribly in need of understanding and patient care. His heart – and his head – responded, and the idea of Boys Haven was born. Today, Boys and Girls Haven serves both young men and young women through a variety of campus based and community based programming. Read “The Story of Father Maloney’s Boys’ Haven
