Naples, Fl (October 23, 2019). Youth Haven, Inc. is pleased to announce they are a recipient of a $7,500.00 grant from Bank of America.
The grant was presented by Bank of America President Gerri Moll at the 2019 Bank of America Charitable Foundation Community Partner Grant Awards held at their Pine Ridge Financial Center on October 16, 2019. The funds received will benefit Youth Haven’s Homeless Teen Transitional Living Program, which is designed to help abused, neglected, and homeless teens transition to safe, healthy and responsible adulthood. The grant will allow Youth Haven to continue to build the program and provide assistance to teens who are in danger of becoming homeless.
“The Bank of America grant will allow us to continue to improve our Homeless Teen Transitional Living Program at Youth Haven. Working with a case manager, Youth Haven is able to develop individualized goals to help stabilize them and transition them to adult life, through counseling, therapy, education, training, transportation, referrals and employment services,” says Jinx Liggett, Executive Director. “This program is a life-changer for the teens that participate and we’re extremely thankful for Bank of America’s support.”
