Since 1950, Boys & Girls Haven has transformed the lives of more than 3,500 abandoned, abused and neglected children. More than just a home, they provide stability, education, and new productive skills that will lead to success in adulthood.

“As integral to the success of having at-risk youth move on successfully to live fulfilling lives are the youth counselors who touch their hearts and help mold their futures”, says George McCarthy. One such counselor at the Haven, Mr. Ralph ‘Rome’ Kimbrough, has been ‘lighting up the stage’ on America’s Got Talent (even leaving Simon Cowell speechless)!  Making the 3rd cut, watch his group ‘Linkin’ Bridge’ perform on Tuesday August 23 and vote for those who are making a difference.
