Throughout October our halls were filled with people giving their time to make A Child’s Haven a better place- all to help our youngest citizen's like Palmer . Over a hundred volunteers from area business clubs and churches cleaned our building from top to bottom- something especially important during flu season. Thanks to everyone from Hubbell Lighting, Bridgeway Church Leadership School, Christ Church Episcopal School, Smoak Public Relations, Greenville Fellows, and UPS who took time from their days to make someone else’s a little better.

Another October highlight was our Fall Lifting Lives Luncheon where old and new friends learned the impact our treatment model and nutrition program have on Adverse Childhood Experiences. There is no magic cure for the challenges these children face, but the therapeutic treatment and supportive environment offered at A Child’s Haven helps them on the road to a brighter future.

The impact numbers are in! 92% of successfully discharged children demonstrate measurable behavioral and emotional improvement. 90% of families have learned skills to help their child through our Home Visitation program. Finally, 95% of parents and/or caregivers deal more effectively with daily challenges after attending A Child’s Haven’s parent education classes and support groups. The full impact report will be released at our Holiday Benefit Breakfast.

We are proud of these results, however, achieving impact takes your help. A Child’s Haven FYE19 budget is $3.5 million dollars. As we enter the holiday season, I ask that you consider A Child’s Haven this year, be it an annual gift or by participating in one of our upcoming fundraisers.

Our 20 th Annual Holiday Benefit Breakfast Friday, December 7 th . Dick Wilkerson, retired president of Michelin North America and champion of young children and families, will share how strong childhood policies are critical if our state wants to meet long-term economic development and competitive workforce goals.
