Naples, Fl (July 18, 2019). Youth Haven, Inc. is pleased to announce they’re a recipient of a $50,000 grant from the Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation.

Enrichment activities include, but are not limited to, summer camps, trips to the theatre and fishing trips.
“The Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation’s extremely generous gift will allow us to continue to enhance our enrichment program at Youth Haven. These activities allow the abused, abandoned and homeless children and teens that we support to grow, thrive and experience opportunities that they might otherwise never have the chance to,” said Jinx Liggett, Executive Director. “We’re extremely thankful for this donation and thank the Richard M.
