Haven’s Way long-term homes program provides supports for 6 girls, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Direct Youth Expenses for one girl for one month are $3,500. This includes a safe place to live, a warm bed, food, healthcare, clothing, school supplies, individualized support, recreation and therapeutic activities, transportation, personal incidentals and gifts. Age is not the determining factor when a girl moves out, rather it is a mutual decision that is made in much the same manner as a nuclear family. The average time a girl will live at Haven’s Way is two and a half years; some have stayed as long as four years. We believe that even one life changed is a significant accomplishment and benefit to our society. Therefore, we are immensely proud to say that, since opening our doors in November of 2000, almost young women have called Haven’s Way® Home.

“I’ve been living on my own now, out of the program for 5 years. I am still finding my way. The skills I learned at Haven’s Way are what help me put one foot in front of the other when things start to get hard. The friendships and connections that I made while living there are my supports for life. I keep trying! I have confidence knowing that I have what it takes to live the life I dream of. Some days are harder than others but, because of the strength I gained and the growth that happened to me at Haven’s Way, my plan is to continue my education and give back to those who cannot do it on their own”. – Haven’s Way Graduate
