MEET THE BOARD
Founder, Chairman of the Board, President
Ms. King is the Founder of the Safe Haven Kid’s League of California City. She has worked with the homeless and also opened and managed a Sober Living for recovering addicts for many years. Her inspiration for starting the organization stemmed from the pandemic, its riveting effect on the nation and community. Particularly, the impact COVID-19 has had on her grandchildren’s education and social activities causing gradual loss of motivation and drive. As a result, Ms. King created a safe, caring, and stimulating after-school environment California City’s elementary and middle school children can go to comfortably develop intellectually, physically, socially, and emotionally to his or her fullest potential.
Tony Denson’s background with youth began as a teenager when, he spent his summers working with different camp programs and interacting with younger kids. He himself became an uncle fairly at an early age which gave him the much-needed patience and love for helping and teaching young minds. Having successfully gone through two different adoptions for a total of four kids, he is still referred to as “Uncle Tony” and even as the kids’ “favorite Uncle” is priceless to him. Within Safe Haven Kid’s League of California City, CA, Tony continues to take on the challenge to opening doors, minds and giving hope to others.
Anthony is the glue behind the scenes that helps to hold the Safe Haven Kid’s League of California City together. His tireless work ensures that our facility is safe, up to code, and comfortable enough for kids of all ages. With many years of experience working in recovery for struggling individuals, Anthony’s big frame holds a large heart full of compassion and love for the youth. Anthony has been married to Founder Linda King for 24 years and have raised 4 children together which all have job duties and positions in Safe Haven Kid’s League of California City. On any day, you may find Anthony picking up donations for the club, making phone calls to raise awareness of the organization, or even telling a joke to boost morale to the other board and committee members. But you’ll never find Anthony sitting down, as his work ethic simply will not allow him to do so, and we are blessed to have him as part of the Safe Haven Kid’s League of California City Family.

I believe California city’s children will benefit greatly from Safe Haven Kid’s League and all it has to offer. I have experience with children from different
