2021 Annual Report Available

Christ’s Haven’s 2021 Annual Report is ready!

We hope you will take a moment to read through the 2021 Annual Report so you can see the impact made in the lives of so many. A few highlights include:

* CEO Update from Cassie McQuitty
* Welcome from Board Chair, Darrin Lewis
* 2021 Outcomes: Residential – College & Career Readiness Programs
* Family Resource Center Update
* 2021 Volunteer Awards
* 2022 Special Events
* Financials
* Spotlight Profiles

As you will read in the Annual Report, we saw tremendous growth in 2021 with 95% capacity in our Residential Program for youth ages 0-18 and the largest group we’ve ever had in our College & Career Readiness Program for young adults ages 18-24. We don’t anticipate the demand to lessen. As the Texas foster care system is at the height of a capacity crisis, we know and believe that Christ’s Haven is here to be an important part of the solution.

It will take focus and determination from all of our partners to continue providing Normalcy, Dignity, and Hope for displaced youth. We are ready and look forward to serving with you.

In Memoriam – David Isom

We are heartbroken at the passing of David Isom, a member of Christ’s Haven’s Board of Directors. David was a wonderful leader for our organization and advocate for the youth we care for. We hold his family close to our hearts and in our prayers. He will be missed.

A few words of reflection about David from Christ’s Haven CEO, Cassie McQuitty:
“There are some people who come into your life and immediately make a mark. David Isom was one of those people for me. From the moment I met David, I knew there was something different about him. I wasn’t sure what, but I knew it was special.
As I got to know him as a board member, a friend, and a mentor, I saw him to be humble and kind. A still waters run deep kind of person. He was funnier than I thought he would be and had a habit of responding to emails with memes. One of the things I respected so much about David was his ability to recognize the strengths of those around him. He became an incredible cheerleader of mine, of our staff, and of every child we care for at Christ’s Haven. He was thoughtful about every decision he was making as a board member and wanted, more than anything, to serve our kids well. He was entrenched in our mission and believed in our values to provide normalcy, dignity and hope.

Knowing David and having him serve on the Christ’s Haven Board of Directors made me a better leader and Christ’s Haven a better organization. David will be incredibly missed.”

Child Abuse Prevention Art Installation

Thank you to everyone who braved the wind and attended our Child Abuse Prevention event and art installation. Our speakers shared difficult but important information about the need for more child abuse prevention in our community. 💙

Be sure to stop by the Keller Police Station on Rufe Snow to see the powerful visual of 543 blue pinwheels in honor of the 543 victims of child abuse every month in Tarrant County.
At Christ’s Haven, we are grateful to be able to care for youth who have experienced abuse or neglect, and we are also grateful to be part of the community effort to prevent abuse from happening with our Family Resource Center.
