Hope for Homes: Meet Tracey Scholen
Tracey Scholen’s first connection with foster care was through a young woman 15 years ago. Margaret* spent most of her life in the foster care system and had never experienced the love of a forever family. “Even as an adult – she did not have a home to go to for holidays,” says Tracey. “It just broke my heart! I knew then that I wanted to be part of helping foster children and the families who care for them.”
Tracey and her husband, Jeff, explored the process of becoming licensed foster parents when God put that on hold and planted a new desire to be financial contributors.
A licensed Realtor®, Tracey saw a connection between helping clients buy and sell homes and doing something to help children in foster care find safe “forever” havens of their own. Out of this vision, The Hāvn Group began. A portion of the Hāvn Group profits goes directly to ministries that actively help foster children and foster families, including FaithBridge Foster Care.
“Our hope for EVERY foster child is to know the unconditional love of Jesus through the unconditional love of a family. We desire every child to feel that their presence matters and that God created them with purpose!”
