It's not about bowling... it's about helping kids!
A Message From Brittany Beckett
Every holiday season, there are about 100 women living in the Street Haven programs. For the majority of these women, the only holiday festivities they will take part in, are the ones we provide.
The holidays can be a very difficult time of year for women experiencing homelessness, as they reflect on seasons past, where they once were surrounded by loved ones.
In light of this, the staff at Street Haven do their best to brighten the holidays for women living in our programs, so that they feel loved and not forgotten.
The goal of this campaign, is to help raise money for gifts and a celebratory dinner for all the women who will be with us. Every year we try to provide women with a full holiday celebration including a dinner, entertainment and presents. A goal of $2500 works out to only $25 per woman that will be here at Street Haven throughout the holiday.
Of course anything you are able to give is greatly appreciated. Please help us bring a little joy into the lives of the city's most vulnerable women.

Why Should I Bowl For Kids’ Sake?
By bowling you directly and positively impact children ...
When the Dalai Lama said that we were a charity where deeds speak louder than words doubtless he knew there are lots of ways to choose a particular charity (for example through which to sponsor a child). Some people choose charities based on the charity's presence giving opinions on the news, the charity's TV or newspaper adverts or the mail the charity sends. These people aren't wrong, but we are not that kind of charity; we build families not headlines. We get on with giving the least fortunate of children a chance of a proper family life. People find us and it is by our deeds that we think they should judge us.
Sometimes choosing a charity to donate to is simply based on the charities popularity. It is a well documented fact that an event organized or endorsed by a celebrity will have a greater chance at achieving success.
