Review for Heaventrain, Cleveland, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Our church has supported this ministry for many years...probably over 20, maybe 30. We love hearing the stories of God's protection, His provision, and His saving grace for the children and young adults of Cleveland! Our children, from the time they could toddle around, have bundled up and picked greens to send to Cleveland, so Heaventrain could distribute them. We love the Battens and believe they are called of God to this ministry. They have surrounded themselves with mission minded individuals that provide a check and balance system as they move the organization forward in continuing the services they are known for while branching out to reach the communities in additional ways.

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field

Review for Heaventrain, Cleveland, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Working to support this important ministry is important to our family. For years our local church has picked 'greens' that have went to Heaventrain for them to distribute. This is a multi-generational day that my children have participated in since they could walk. Our teens enjoyed volunteering on a Sat. route this spring. We also enjoy picking out school supplies, sidewalk chalk, etc. for them to use. We trust the Battens and believe that what they say, they do. Their integrity is unquestionable. Their vision has not changed over 3o years, it just continues to expand to meet the physical, mental, and spiritual needs of the children in Cleveland! Their outreach ministries into schools, neighborhoods with sports, etc. are changing lives not just a moment, but for a lifetime. Lighthouse Inc. deserves our support- small or large. They make every penny and donation count!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Hearing the amazing stories of changed lives; Meeting some of the children and young adults affected positively by Lighthouse Inc.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Nothing, besides being able to allow them unlimited resources. It broke my daughters' hearts this spring when they found that there isn't enough food to feed the kids every Sat.
