The option to monthly sponsor 2 or more children through Haven is available. Sponsorship of each child is $35 a month, if you are sponsoring 2 children it would be $70 a month, 3 children would be $105 a month, and so on. You can choose to donate more than the recommended $35/month for your child. It takes more than one sponsor 1 sponsor to support each child. We recommend $35/month because sharing the cost of supporting a child is affordable for most individuals and families.

Because it costs more than $35 a month to provide for everything the children need, we must have multiple sponsors for each of our children. To ensure that they receive the best care possible, your monthly support combined with others is vital to meeting the needs of our children.
