Act 50.

Haven House

 

For our last act of kindness, The Conway office donated $685 to The Haven House. It is a great program that we believe is very deserving.

A residential shelter for abused girls, HAVEN, has been providing hope and stability for residents, ages 6 through 18, since 1986. HAVEN focuses on youth who have been physically and/or sexually abused, neglected, abandoned, or who are homeless.

Upon arrival at HAVEN, youngsters remain for an indefinite time depending on their specific circumstances. During a child’s stay, staff members continually seek opportunities for active community involvement. Residents hold jobs, participate in social activities, and make new friends while attending area schools.

The shelter also provides mental health services, including individual and group therapy, psychiatric evaluation, medication management, family therapy, after-school programs, and other appropriate treatment and services.
