Our 2015 small grant of $2,000 has been awarded to Haven House Services (HHS) for an innovative bi-weekly support group for adolescent girls involved in the juvenile justice system.

This new group will focus on strengthening academic success, enhancing decision making skills, reducing recidivism, taking care of physical selves, enhancing communication skills and learning skills to manage anger — all with an emphasis on community involvement and service.

HHS is a nonprofit organization that has been providing services to Wake County’s youth and young adults since 1973. HHS’s mission is to strengthen youth and young adults through effective programs, advocacy and community mobilization. By implementing programs and services for youth that are effective, innovative, researched and sustainable, HHS changes outcomes for struggling families and helps kids find ways to more positive, productive lives.
