Our Vision

Providing Shelter and Empowering Children & Families of Belize for a brighter future.


San Pedro Town on Ambergris Caye in Belize is host to nearly 25,000 residents, where there is great need for children and families.  Hope Haven is the first children's shelter on the island, hosts the San Pedro Food Bank to over 130 locals, and is the home of the Shine Center, which hosts empowerment programs for youth and young women. From providing counseling services, to serving hot meals, and providing business opportunities, our goal is to give hope to the community we live in.

43% of Belize’s population lives in poverty. Our people are struggling to make ends meet. Most families are one emergency away from losing their homes or falling into major debt.


We are currently raising funds for our programs and ongoing operating expenses. We are working as fast as our funds allow us to, but maintaining a shelter for the country comes at a cost. If you are interested in partnering with us, we would love to have you join us. Whether volunteering or contributing financially, your support is what we need to keep going.

Help us to make a difference in this place. We can’t do it without you!
