Since Hurricane Irma made landfall earlier this month, all of Southwest Florida is still in the process of recovering from the devastation. Thankfully, our 57 children and teens are safe following this horrific storm, however, our campus has been devastated by the hurricane’s impact.  Like so many others, we lost power, phones and internet, cutting us off from the outside world while we waited for the storm to pass.  Storm recovery has proven even more difficult than we had imagined.  With no power for over a week, and temperatures soaring into the 90’s in Naples, the staff sprang into action to keep our youngsters safe and cared for.  We cleaned up debris to create safe play spaces, brought water, gas and food onto campus, and planned activities and outings to keep the children cool and occupied.  Like many others in the community, Youth Haven had no access to clean, running water for showering, laundering clothes, or even washing hands.  The outpouring of support from our friends and neighbors has been heartwarming, as we have received donations of desperately needed supplies to keep us going.


Despite our restored power and running water, Youth Haven is still in a critical situation. Our beautiful campus is damaged, with many trees downed and blocking roads and paths, fences ripped apart, and our playground and serenity garden destroyed. Recovery expenses are overwhelming, and we need your help.  Thank you for your generosity!
