The Haven Adolescent Community Respite Center (Haven) is celebrating another year serving Hudson County with a gala! Join them on January 15th for their annual gala celebrating a third year of providing services and support to youth and families.
What is Haven?
Haven provides programming and support to Hudson County adolescents and their families when conflict exposes them to the risks of youth homelessness and incarceration.
Haven is led by a talented team of directors including:
Jessica Taube, Operational Director
Pamela Johnson, Director of Community Engagement
Janine Brown, Program Director
Jose Diaz, Deputy Program Director
They’ve provided more than 100 new youth and families with a range of day services in the last year, preventing teen homelessness and incarceration.
Every Saturday, youth gather for the Cook.Eat.Talk program, which provides peer support, informal social work, and a sense of home.
Greenville Lifeskills Program
With support from I Heart Greenville, Haven offers a life skills program for youth ages 12 to 21 based on the Casey Lifeskills Curriculum.
Haven partners with the Jersey City Municipal Alliance Against Drug Abuse and Jersey City Public Schools to provide a mentorship program for high school-aged youth.
