Acknowledgment from our donors

"I am fortunate to have the resources to take the programs, and I am very much aware that some others are not. I think everybody should have the opportunity to go to The Haven, enough so that I want to help them by donating to the Haven's Financial Aid Program."

"In my 20 some years of attending The Haven programs I have come to trust the integrity of this foundation. Thus I believe my money is well spent for the betterment of society and the world. I am grateful!"
