This organization gives back to the community by helping economic disadvantage young women excel in life. They provide opportunities for the young women to explore their educational dreams and give them an opportunity to earn money toward their future educational endeavors.
Elizabeth Haven receives my annual support for the following reasons:
1. As a woman, I believe in the positive message that shared with young girls/ladies at an early age to encourage them to maximize potential and capatilize on their unique gifts and talents.
2. As an educator, I endorse the program's intentional efforts to expose their audience to a variety of cultural, social, mental, spiritural experiences. For many of the young ladies, the lens of their imaginations, perspectives, and awareness are broadened in such a way that a new stimulation to see, know, learn, grow, and live beyond what could otherwise be very limiting circumstances is birth through the Elizabeth Haven organization.
3. As a humanitarian who largely desires to give back and to be a part of something that matters, that makes a lasting impact- I am touched, moved, and inspired by the extraordinary power of this effort which is spearheaded by an unassuming, seemingly ordinary woman. The organization is proof that we all have something to contribute to the greater good of mankind.
I have watched this organization grow and develop from its inception. I am proud of the work Vicky is doing with the girls in our community and support all her efforts. I've seen the sacrifices she has made to ensure the girls receive everything they need and its been my pleasure to support her financially. I also provided professional soccer services during her camps at Houston Baptist University and University of Houston. It was the girls' first experience with soccer and they were great. I hope to collaborate more with Elizabeth Haven in the capacity of providing soccer training for her organization and in any other way I can. I really believe in what they are doing and I believe in Vicky.
Elizabeth Haven has been a great benefit to our community and the young girls in it. This program has enabled them to connect with other girls their age, some who are currently experiencing challenges and others who have made it through them. With events throughout the year and the camp experience, these girls lives will never be the same. The volunteers are excited and dedicated. They pull through to ensure that these campers are met with love and acceptance no matter what their lives may have brought. The counselors and volunteers that facilitate "Girl Talk" is priceless in a world that many of our youth are not talking to mentors or adults in their lives. Teh program is simple yet effective. Some girls traveled last year out of Texas for the first time in their lives. And they did it with great supervision, and a group of girls destined not to be left behind! The only thing that would make this organization much better is the ability to serve many more girls. I highly reccommend this organization for anyone who has a young girl they want connected with good people who will help encourage them to reach their personal and professional goals.
