Dedicated, hard-working and committed to achieving our mission

Christel DeHaan
Founder and Chairman of the Board

Everyone faces challenges in life—but the capacity to overcome hardships, learn from mistakes, and forge ahead in the face of immense adversity is a quality inherent in most successful individuals.

The obstacles facing Christel House students are daunting—daily exposure to gang warfare, drugs, alcoholism, hunger, abuse, negative role models, violence, suffering and discrimination—but every day our students come to school, learn and set their sights on a better tomorrow. They have dreams, and while at Christel House their aspiration is to make those dreams become reality.

We celebrate their determination and courage. They are breaking through the barriers of poverty to build a new and better life for themselves and a future for their families. They are our heroes, and role models for others to follow.

Sincerely,

Christel DeHaan

Founder and Chairman of the Board
