#1 New Head Quarters for GIFWAO

Global Initiative for Widows and Orphans A Global and Resource Organization of all of those who are involved or want to be involved in helping take care of true Widows, Orphans, and the poor. This is a network of those who join hand-in-hand together to help those who are already reaching out. As God leads, we also are starting new works around the world for the abandoned children and needy widows.


It is our greatest desire to help those who are in a place where they desperately need help with no other resources. To financially support, educate, and help provide for orphanages the necessary resources for the children that they are helping.

It is also our desire to connect widows with these orphanages for that they have the necessary help to care for these children.

At GIFWAO, we are COMMITTED to assisting Orphanages around the World to succeed. Our curriculum, programs, educational development, Financial Assistance, and Support Services are designed to help Widows and Orphans to live Successful and productive lives. Youth reach their goals and fulfill their highest potential.

We are proud of all our children, and love watching them grow into bright-minded and confident individuals. If you would like to support this initiative, please visit us at

#3 Private School K-12

Safe Haven Christian School - Our goal is to provide Godly instruction and academic education for Pre-Kindergarten through high school in an interdenominational Christ-centered atmosphere. It is our goal to assist each student in reaching their full potential while recognizing their God-given talents and abilities. JILMI has had a license with the state of Pennsylvania from 1986 to the present!


#4 Safe Haven Vocational School

Provide advance educational training. Vocational schools, sometimes referred to as trade schools or career schools, provide practical training with few unrelated academic course requirements. They are relevant to many kinds of learners, including:

Individuals who are planning to enter an industry for the first time

Adults who are looking to reenter the workforce

Professionals who wish to pursue a new career field

The education offered at our vocational schools allows adults to focus on the skills to enter a particular industry, with the option of not taking unrelated general education courses required for a degree at a community college. Our Vocational schools also provide technology training or retraining for workers in their current occupations.

Program Lengths

Vocational schools can offer programs ranging from short-unit classes of ten weeks or less to long-term plans of up to two years in length. Some states provide public vocational schools and career training programs through community colleges, but the majority of vocational schools are private institutions. Vocational school credits do not typically transfer to undergraduate academic programs like an Associate of Arts program, but they may award students with a certificate credential.

Common Programs

Our Vocational school focuses on programs in career fields that can be completed in two years or less. Our Vocational school focuses on a single field, such as automotive or health services, offering only one training program or give students a choice of several programs in the same industry, such as hairstylist, barber, nail technician ..etc. Our other vocational schools offer programs in several unrelated fields, like agriculture, office skills, and technical training. The following are possible for vocational school programs: Welding, Plumbing, Carpentry, Electrical installation and maintenance, Motorcycle and automotive repair, Hotel and restaurant management..Etc.


#5 Organic Growers & Livestock School

The Program seeks to train thoughtful, engaged and responsive future farmers and leaders in practices of farm production that sustain and regenerate land and community.  We help our students establish conceptual understanding and physical competency in a wide range of skills and areas of farm production: forestry, animal husbandry, carpentry, mechanics, business planning, homesteading, marketing, cooking, organic vegetable production, farm-based education and beyond. The program curriculum reaches one hand back into history to pull forward the best of what traditional agriculture has to offer and with the other pushes ahead into cutting edge creative and dynamic ways of enriching our stewardship of the land.


#6 Widows & Homeless Mothers Ministry

The Safe Haven for Mothers & Widows is a Gettysburg based ministry offering to house the homeless widows and single mothers while partnering them with our local Christian community to sponsor them emotionally, physically, and spiritually.

With Christ as our foundation

Our volunteers work to reverse the devastating and long-term effects of poverty and homelessness among widows and single mothers and their children.  Our programs and services are focused on empowering to apprehend a bright and happy future.


#7 Academic Institution for the Work of the Ministry

(Write up from Victorious Living Ministries Int'l Inc)


At the moment when God's Word is heard, understood, and applied, a person's life can change dramatically. We're giving God's Word in simplicity and practicality, so all hear it and their lives can become what God intends them to be.

This includes Bible training for all ages, genders, and nationalities. Bible training that points toward Jesus Christ and redemption and salvation through Him. Training in God's Word that gives strength, wisdom, and skills for working with others, revealing the meaning of true freedom and how to live in health and lasting joy. We're building people. Rev. Melody Lavin, D. Min.


#8 Safe Haven Summer Children's Camp

The experience of summer camp goes far beyond enjoying the fun activities usually associated with camping, such as hiking, swimming, and living in a cabin. Campers learn character-building skills, develop greater self-confidence, leadership, and team-building skills.

Campers can enjoy either a two week or three-week camping session, which includes traditional camping activities while focusing on developing character and values. Campers also learn team-building, responsibility, cooperation, and confidence. They develop friendships that can last a lifetime.


#9 Personal Enrichment Conferences

Ever since the days of camp meetings, Christians have thrived on intense periods of Bible teaching, worship, and prayer. Our Christian conferences are designed to help Christians focus on their area of ministry, provide encouragement, and sharpen one's skills tools for ministry.

 Conferences aren't just for pastors or church leaders, either. There are Christian conferences for moms, dads, women, men, Sunday School teachers, families, new Christians, old Christians, and medium Christians. There's a Christian conference for anyone interested in deepening their relationship with Christ.
