Our Mission

Home   About Us   Our Mission

At Boys and Girls Haven, we change children’s lives. We heal the scars left by abuse and neglect. We teach struggling youth to be successful as they embark on lives of independence. Too many children aging out of foster care find themselves adrift in adulthood with limited resources and nowhere to turn for help. Not surprisingly, the number of homeless youth between the age of 18 and 24 is on the rise. At Boys and Girls Haven, our mission has always been to provide struggling youth with both a home and a future. Through a variety of programs, we provide therapy, stability, education, and vocational training for our community’s most vulnerable children and young adults. Since our founding in 1950, Boys and Girls Haven has touched the lives of more than 3,500 abandoned, abused and neglected children.

Our Mission Statement: We shelter, heal and teach struggling young people to become productive and healthy members of our community.
