Quaker Haven is an attractive camp on the shores of Dewart Lake accommodating a series of summer youth camps and has ever-improving facilities for year-round use by all ages. The focus of each camp is on Jesus Christ: praying that campers will have life-changing experiences.
The center maintains active children’s and youth programs for the Native American youth including work programs for earning their way to camp and other activities. Practical classes are offered to the community such as money management and a clothes closet for needy families. They have two sons, Nathan and Joseph .
White’s ministers to at-risk children and families and is called to serve thousands of children who without assistance and guidance would fall through the cracks of society. White’s provides a continuum of care for hurting children and families through Residential Services, Therapeutic Foster Care, Emergency Shelter Care, Home-Based Services, Transitional Living Programs and Alpha Adoptions. Our money goes to support White’s Spiritual Fund and chapel.
