For 18 years we have provided services to the children across south Mississippi.
Hope Haven's mission and services have changed over the years. We began as an organization that operated an emergency shelter for abused and neglected children. Today, we do much more and tomorrow...we will do what needs to be done to help children.
When you help a child today....
You write the history of tomorrow.
Please visit the different pages so you get an idea of how much we are doing! Thank you for the support from you and our community!
Every child should have the opportunity to grow up in a loving and safe home with caring parents or caregivers. Families who work hard and are suddenly faced with an economic crisis should not have to worry about the state taking their children into custody. Children in custody of the state should be monitored and given the opportunity for their voice to be heard in Youth Court. Teens who have aged out of the States Foster Care system need help starting out on their own and getting an education.
Thank you to our wonderful group of volunteers, donors and corporate sponsors that have joined hands with us to make Hope Haven one of the most active and effective non profit organizations here in south Mississippi. Together... we'll keep the dream going.

Child Abuse happens in YOUR neighborhood to children in YOUR child or grandchild's school. It affects all of us.
A hearty thanks to Brett and Deanna Favre for their hometown support--It
comes at a critical time for us--due to budget constraints we will be losing our
county financial support for next year.
