“Building Better Tomorrows…. one person at a time”
Our Community Center…
To strengthen human life through educational, social, and recreational activities in a structured and supervised setting
“I live but one life…and I may live that one poorly, but I have a vision of a better life that someone coming after me may lead. I spend my thoughts, my time, my money, and my very self imparting that vision to a few young people. They see it, they live it, and my whole life weak and faulty, is reincarnated in theirs…stronger, finer, and greater than I ever dream to be”
Behind every decision you make, a human life is affected
None of us can do everything, but all of us can do something
Who is Delhaven Community Center
Delhaven Community Center is a private non – profit social service agency. Delhaven was founded in 1972 by Barbara and Wyatt Seal, as they volunteered to start a two week day camp program free of charge for over 35 local youth from the La Puente community, and now 50 years later Delhaven provides over 25 programs for children ages 5-18 years, at risk youth, young adults, special needs children and adults, those struggling with emotional and/or mental challenges, and family services. Located in La Puente, Delhaven services the vast majority of the San Gabriel Valley.
A dream built upon a vision… a vision that “I live but one life, and I may live that one poorly, but I have a vision of a better life that someone coming after me may lead. I spend my thoughts, my time, my money, and my very self imparting that vision to a few young people. They see it, they live it, and my whole life, weak and faulty, is re-incarnated in theirs-stronger, finer and greater than I ever dared to be…” author unknown
For 50 years this has been the vision of Delhaven Community Center. As a grass-roots agency founded in the City of La Puente in 1972, Delhaven is dedicated to the strengthening of human life through social, educational, and recreational leisure time activities in a structured and supervised setting.
We focus on providing affordable opportunities which will address the needs of our community, providing a nurturing environment which will help strengthen the family unit, provide opportunities for volunteer leadership, provide opportunities for individuals to challenge themselves to live their lives in the best possible fashion based upon strong moral principles, and to provide activities in which individuals of all ages, color, and creed may experience acceptance, respect, love and personal growth in a caring environment.
