HFHC’s MISSION IS TO ENGAGE SUPPORTERS IN THE JOYFUL TRANSFORMATION OF POVERTY-BOUND HAITIAN CHILDREN INTO OUTSTANDING CHRISTIAN LEADERS IN THEIR HOMES, CHURCHES, AND COMMUNITIES.
This Christian organization was founded by Ken Bever. The organization is now in its 25th year of ministry. HFHC helps impoverished children by aiding in their well-being in these key areas:
Spiritual, Education and Training, Housing, Health Care and Nutrition. To date, there are ten locally-operated Christian schools in Haiti where over 2100 at-risk sponsored children are educated and served a hot lunch. Two orphans’ homes have been established with local Christian couples who are caring and training 70 sponsored young people. HFHC has been recognized by Charity Navigator for the 7th consecutive year with its 4-star
rating, recognizing the organization’s strong financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency, as well as a perfect 100 score for three years running.
Representing HFHC is Ken Bever [More about Ken]
Young Life is a world-class organization for adolescents. The staff and volunteers enter the world of kids, focusing on what matters to them–fun, adventure, friendship and a sense of significance. When embracing kids, Young Life volunteers earn the privilege of talking to them about something that matters most of all–the truth about God and His love for them. Pickens County Young Life is celebrating 20 years of ministry in this community. Many kids have heard about God’s love for them from caring adults who walk alongside them and help them learn to grow in their faith.
Representing Young Life is Bonnie Carlton. [More about Bonnie]
