Our Babies

There are three houses at the Havens:
Eleanor's House (entry house)
Kelly's House (toddlers)
Marjorie's House (for children with medical needs)

Many times children are brought to the Havens because their mother has died or is unable to care for her child. Operating under a system of home-based orphan care, our ideal scenario is to provide a safe, loving environment for the children when they are most vulnerable (ages 0-3 yrs) and then transition the children back into life with their relatives in their home village.

We encourage relatives to visit their child at any time and ask them to stay at the Havens for a few days before taking their child back to their home village. Leaving day is wonderfully bittersweet. We are sad to see the children we love leaving our lives, but so grateful to God for answering our prayers by providing a family for His precious children.
Another part of our ministry is going to visit our kids after they have gone back to their home village. These visits allow us to stay connected with our children and deepen our relationship with their new families.
