What makes your life full and rich? Is it your involvement in church? Your job? Is it the
friends you go to the movies with, or the buddies who come over to watch the football
Could it even be the small choices you make every day, such as what to have
for breakfast or what to watch on TV in the evening? All of these things together are
what fill our lives with joy and keep us engaged in our communities.
Adults with a developmental disability want a life just like yours: a life where they are
part of a community, get to experience the many joys the world has to offer, and make
their own choices. That’s where Heart Havens comes in.
Heart Havens is a Virginia Conference Advance Special mission that provides
residential support to adults with a developmental disability, but it’s so much more than
just providing a house. Heart Havens empowers people to discover what it is they love
and then pursue it.
No matter what the goal is, Heart Havens is all about helping the people they support find a way to make their dreams a reality.
This February, our congregation will lift up Heart Havens Month, a time to both support the Heart Havens mission with our gifts and celebrate the gifts that people with a developmental disability bring to the church. Gifts we collect for Heart Havens allow them to continue providing a vibrant lifestyle for the people they support.
