Haven Sustainability

I am excited and nervous to write this post.

Excited because I believe this is the first step in helping Haven of Hope operate their ministry budget in the most God-honoring way possible.

Nervous, because that involves Hope Grafted In seeking A LOT of money to pay off their current debt and begin a sustainability project.

We all know, whether we have taken the Dave Ramsey Financial Peace courses or not, that you can’t balance your budget with the weight of outstanding debts pulling you down. Because Haven has operated over the past years solely on donations, they have seen GOD be faithful in huge ways. Not only has He provided for the items they need, but the ministry is flourishing and children are finding family. We know that He will provide yet again.

The Haven outstanding debts from the past several years are $3400.

We have been blessed to have Amber in Kenya assisting Haven staff in implementing budget strategies that will help to make their ministry even better. God has blessed the Child Sponsorship Program. Between that program and a generous once a month donation, the Haven budget will be met each month.

We are working at beginning a sustainability project at Haven with a local creamery and goat milk. This project will bring in A LOT of extra income for the ministry and help them to grow and add children to their family. The start up costs for this is $3600.

Total Haven Sustainability Project cost is $7000.  We want to raise these funds before December.  We are blessed to have $1300 already raised!

If you know of anyone that would want to donate to these projects, they can visit the link (it's in the picture) and designate their tax-deductible gift to “Haven of Hope” putting “Haven Sustainability Projects” in the Notes.
