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, more than 80 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
