What can't I say about Elizabeth Haven? For over two years, I have had the opportunity to volunteer with a great group of individuals to bring inspiration and direction to various young ladies. These young ladies are taught invaluable life lessons that will bring personal development from home to education to careers. They learn how to care, share, and nurture relationships with one another, family members and other friends. I will forever be grateful for the opportunity to be a volunteer for LIFE!!

I would like to commend the organization for stepping up and helping young ladies to understand their value and worth through mentoring. My daughter is also a current member of the group and she looks forward to spending time with other young ladies where she doesn't have to compete, but share experiences. Vicky, thank you for allowing us to be a part of Elizabeth Haven.

Elizabeth Haven does so much more than take girls on summer trips to visit college campuses. The organization provides an environment where young girls can develop and grow into strong young women. They have the opportunity to interact with professionals throughout the year, which expands their knowledge. They also participate in college and personal development workshops to prepare them for next steps in their lives. I am honored to serve as volunteer for Elizabeth Haven. I believe in the work they do, and I know it is building confidence and enthusiasm in the lives of the young women it serves.

Elizabeth Haven has been such a tremendous blessing to the community in the Greenspoint and Spring area of Houston, TX. I'm sure this program will touch the lives of even more young teen girls beyond Houston. These young ladies have been introduced to the world of education, and has given them the gift of dreaming. They have had the pleasure of visiting and lodging in college dormitories here in Houston, trips to New York, Denver, Washington DC, and more to come. Visiting Colleges all free of charge to the girls. Victoria Ochiche works tirelessly to make this happen for these young ladies. Yes, I recommend Elizabeth Haven to the surrounding Communities and the world!! I have truly enjoyed being a volunteer to see lives changed up close and personal.

I HAVE BEEN RAISING MONEY FOR THIS ORGANIZATION WITH MY COMPANY FOR A FEW YEARS BECAUSE WE BELEIVE IN THE WORK ELIZABETHHAVEN IS DOING WITH YOUNG GIRLS. I HAD THE PLEASURE OF WORKING WITH THEM IN 2010 AS A VOLUNTEER IN DENVER CO I WAS SO IMPRESSED WITH ALL OF THE GIRLS AND THEIR BEHAVIOR AND EVERYTHING THE ORGANIZATION IS HELPING THE GIRLS WITH. I WILL CONTINUE TO DO WHAT I CAN FOR THE ORGANIZATION.

This is a great organization. I believe the impact of the girls being exposed to life on a college campus alone is worth the time spent making that happen. These young ladies are being given an opportunity I never had. I think if I had this camp when I was younger, I would have made some different choices because I would have known what was really available.
Above the great experience, these girls are learning communication and interpersonal skills to help them express their individual personalities with a greater respect for others as well.
I'm mostly grateful that these young ladies are being provided experiences outside of their current reality and out of their state. The first few years of the camp, the organization stayed on college campuses here in Texas. Last year was the first year the camp went out of state. Beyond recognizing college is an option, these girls now recognize the importance of finding a college which is a good fit for their life, their career pursuits and to find a college which specializes in their major. This has opened up eyes to out of state opportunities.

I had a phenomenal experience working with Elizabeth Haven. When I came in, I was ready and willing to help as a camp counselor, however, not only did I have a chance to help the girls, they also helped me. Their appreciation for the program is something that will stay with me for a lifetime. I truly believe that this camp has impacted and will continue to impact these girls in ways that will be seen in years to come!
