Our Response to the COVID 19 Crisis

Belize’s first COVID-19 case was confirmed on March 23rd 2020 in San Pedro Town. Immediately after, our community, San Pedro Town, was placed under a 72-hour emergency lock down. Hope Haven and all its volunteers sprang into action and began compiling grocery bags for the 50 Families we serve through our various community service programs. However, as more businesses began to shut down, it became evident that more families were in dire need of food supplies to sustain themselves during the lock down. Our food distribution efforts increased exponentially since then as we have provided food supplies to 2542 families equaling to 5079 people on the island. With the continuing impact of the coronavirus being felt across Belize and within our own community, people are relying more heavily on food banks to make ends meet. We remain committed to helping meet the tremendous needs within our communities, including those who struggle to put food on their tables for their families during this crisis. We rely exclusively on the monetary donations that we receive via PayPal or through our 501C3.

Shelter Food and Clothing

Hope Haven ensures that the basic needs of at-risk children in San Pedro, Belize are met. We provide a warm meal and safe bed for kids to sleep at night without distraction or worry. Our people are struggling to make ends meet. Most families are one emergency away from losing their homes or falling into major debt. Together with the San Pedro Food Bank we will be able to provide assistance to low-income families with the basics they desperately need.


Hope Haven's fostered children will receive individual and group therapy. We desire to develop relationships beyond our doors through family therapy as well. Hope Haven has emergency placement and outpatient counseling for domestic abuse victims, mental health services, play therapy and educational services for the fostered children. In addition, Hope Haven will house the SHINE Center, which will focus on the empowerment of at-risk youths.



A major focus of our work is helping children overcome their educational setbacks and feel encouraged to succeed in the classroom. We focus on the basics: Math and Reading Enrichment. Daily educational services for our fostered children help them to catch up in school and feel prepared. Daily reading time helps our children grow emotionally and spiritually while teaching them valuable lessons.


Hope Haven is a not-for-profit organization. We receive less than 10% of our income needs from the Government of Belize; therefore, we are dependent on the generosity of individuals and companies who share our passion in caring for God’s Children.
