We are so grateful to everyone who donated to Haven Acres on GivingTuesday! A total of $3,150 was raised! This helps us so much going into winter to pay for hay, vet bills, admin costs, and all the other things we have to do to make summer sessions possible. We appreciate you all so much! Thank you again!!
GivingTuesday is TODAY! And Facebook is matching donations again this year! Our goal is to raise $6,000 to help cover our winter costs this year. Regardless of your means, your location, or your time constraints, GivingTuesday is a day where anyone can make a difference in the life of our youth. Every child, teenager, family, and horse who comes to Haven Acres is welcomed free of charge, and we rely 100% on our donors to make it possible for us to offer a safe place for them. Even though we don’t have regular programming during the winter season we still have animals to feed, office work to be done, and other ministry needs to fulfill. This is a time of strengthening for our summer season to be successful and we need donors who believe in what we’re doing to help us accomplish that!

Ten bowlers played 3 games, got 57 sponsors, and raised $8,622! It was a fun night of fellowship, pizza, and bowling. We are so grateful for the bowlers who were brave enough to ask family and friends for support and for the donors who generously gave to support the Haven Acres ministry!
Haven Acres offers all of our programs and services free of charge because we believe in offering help to anyone who needs it, not just to those who can afford it. This is a big commitment to uphold that requires a lot of help from the community! If you would like to help support our mission to demonstrate God’s love by serving youth and their families through mentorship and rescuing animals, this is one of the ways you can do that!
Even though the regular programming season is coming to a close, there’s still costs and ministry happening at the ranch. With COVID this year we were unable to run a couple of our usual fundraisers, so this fundraiser could help substantially! Besides helping with our regular programming, your support will allow us to provide a safe home for our rescued and donated horses year-round, run the administrative side of the ministry, train in volunteers, occasionally host especially at-risk youth during the colder months, allow groups of teens in day-treatment to come out, and more. This is a big mission that can’t do without help!
Many people ask for Haven Acres sweatshirts each year and this is the only time that we have them available each year! So if you or someone you know would like to get one, this is your chance! We do not keep extras on hand.
Thank you for supporting our youth, families, and horses in this way!!
