About Us

Started in 1991 by Mari Rothman with a Sonshine Club at Chase Ave Elementary. After 26 years, Sonshine Haven now has 40+ Sonshine & Higher Ground Clubs at our local elementary and middle public schools.

Sonshine/Higher Ground Clubs run once a week for an hour to 1 ½ hours. They include worship, Bible lesson, gospel invitation, memory verse, fun games, & snacks.

Sonshine Haven also offers other programs and services to the club kids and their families including Life Skills (hands on learning during school vacations, held at Sonshine Haven), Cinderella Day, Thanksgiving Dinner Baskets, Christmas Adopt-a-Family, Padre Games (free tickets courtesy of various organizations making memories possible for hundreds of kids and family members each summer) and more!

Everything Sonshine Haven does is free for the kids and families.
We operate by volunteers and are funded by donations.

We welcome your donations and promise to put them to good use!
