Keller-based Christ’s Haven, a transitional home for abused, neglected and abandoned children, recently broke ground on a new home for its campus. The land and construction costs for the $300,000 home were donated by Hanover Property Company and local builders First Texas Homes, Rendition Homes, Bloomfield Homes and Gehan Homes.
"For 61 years, Christ's Haven has been rescuing at-risk, neglected and displaced children,” said Christ’s Haven Executive Director, Dwight Robarts. “The gift of this house not only provides permanent on-campus living quarters for the Director of Children's Service as required by our license, but allows us to renovate the house the Director currently lives in so that we might better serve our kids and take care of more children in the future."
The 2,400 square foot house will have four bedrooms and two baths.
“Christ Haven has worked with over 5,000 kids in at-risk households,” said Dick LeBlanc, President of Hanover Property Company. “They are investing time and energy into the lives of these vulnerable children and we are delighted to participate and walk alongside them in this way.”
Christ's Haven currently has six cottages, a Community Enrichment Center, a Life Path house, a gymnasium, and a chapel on its campus. The organization cares for 48 children on campus as well as children in foster care in off-campus homes in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. The children receive medical and dental care, counseling and tutoring as needed in a warm and loving home under the care and guidance of full-time house parents with the goal of reunifying them with their families.
