“They were glad when it grew calm, and He guided them to their desired haven.”
— Psalm 107:30
The death of a parent immediately brings chaos and disruption into a kids’ world. Over time their lives eventually grow calm again, but that’s when the hard work or heart work begins. “The Haven” will be a place offering guidance, mentorship and opportunities for healing to children who have lost a parent.
Q: What is The Haven?
A: It will be a place for children who have experienced the death of a parent to connect with each other and receive emotional and practical support through programs and events specially designed to help move them through their grief journey.
Q: What programs/services will you offer?
A. Man Camp is a monthly gathering for boys who no longer have fathers to teach and guide them in simple tasks every man should know (i.e. how to start a lawnmower, how to change an air filter, how to throw a ball, how to shake a hand, how to treat a women, etc.). Our “Mentor Dads” have intentional, focused time training these boys to be men of upstanding character. SHIFT, is a weekly, play-based, group grief support program for children. The program is currently offered to children in grades K-5th and will expand in Fall 2023 to serve youth in grades 6-12th. The Haven will also be a secondary, no-cost grief retreat available for use by any widow/widower with school-aged children needing a getaway.
Q: Where is The Haven located?
A: Just three blocks east of Broken Halos Haven on the corner of Walters and Henrietta St. in Old Town Lewisville (Lewisville, TX 75057)
Q: What will the building feature?
A: Man Camp garage, an upstairs art studio for SHIFT activities, a 2-story indoor, spiral slide, soft & safe rage room, large bunk room, and more.
Q: How will it financially sustain itself?
A: When not being used for our youth programs, The Haven can be rented by organizations or individuals needing a fun, indoor facility for meetings, events, birthday parties or sleepovers.
