Hope Haven Children’s Home & Community Center
“Safety and security don’t just happen, they are the result of collective consensus and public investment. We owe our children, the most vulnerable citizens in our society, a life free of violence and fear.”
Throughout the city of San Pedro on Ambergris Caye in Belize, there are many at-risk children and struggling families. In fact, 43% of Belize’s population lives in poverty and are struggling to make ends meet. This is why Hope Haven Children’s Home and Community Center was established.
Hope Haven is the only children’s shelter on Ambergris Caye and is the host of Colleen’s Kitchen Food Bank, which serves over 150 women and children. The children in the care of this organization are raised by devoted house mothers who provide them with stability, attention, guidance, and love. In addition to this valuable care, Hope Haven also delivers counseling services, business opportunities, educational opportunities, hot meals, self-defense classes, scholarship programs, and more. Here at Mahogany Bay Resort, we’re proud to support Hope Haven.

How You Can Help Hope Haven
Hope Haven is a not-for-profit organization, and they receive less than 10% of their income from the Belize government. Therefore, generous donations from individuals and companies are incredibly valuable.
Currently, Hope Haven is raising funds for its ongoing programs, shelter maintenance, and operating expenses. Donations of any kind are greatly appreciated. They also offer volunteer opportunities!
