YOUTH AGES 0-18
At Christ’s Haven, is an option outside of traditional foster care for displaced youth. Family members are able to place their children with them when they are no longer able to provide appropriate care often due to abuse, neglect, or financial strain. Provides safety, love, and consistency in the hope that families can become healthy and whole again.
There is a married couple in a home 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.
