YOUTH HAVEN, INC. EARNS COVETED 4-STAR RATING FROM CHARITY NAVIGATOR

Naples, FL (December 2, 2020)

Youth Haven’s financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency have earned it a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator. This is the sixth consecutive time that Youth Haven has earned this top distinction.

Since 2002, using objective analysis, Charity Navigator has awarded only the most fiscally responsible organizations a 4-star rating. In 2011, Charity Navigator added 17 metrics, focused on governance and ethical practices as well as measures of openness, to its ratings methodology.  These Accountability & Transparency metrics, which account for 50 percent of a charity’s overall rating, reveal which charities operate in accordance with industry best practices and whether they are open with their donors and stakeholders.  On June 1, 2016, we upgraded our methodology for rating each charity’s’ financial health with CN 2.1. These enhancements further substantiates the financial health of our four star charities.

“Youth Haven, Inc.’s exceptional 4-star rating sets it apart from its peers and demonstrates its trustworthiness to the public,” according to Michael Thatcher, President & CEO of Charity Navigator. “Only a quarter of charities rated by Charity Navigator receive the distinction of our 4-star rating. This adds Youth Haven to a preeminent group of charities working to overcome our world’s most pressing challenges. Based on its 4-star rating, people can trust that their donations are going to a financially responsible and ethical charity when they decide to support Youth Haven.”

“It’s important our donors trust that we’re using their donations wisely to accomplish Youth Haven’s mission,” said Jinx Liggett, Youth Haven Executive Director. “Our 4-star Charity Navigator rating demonstrates to our supporters our good governance and financial accountability.”

Youth Haven’s rating and other information about charitable giving are available free of charge on www.charitynavigator.org.  More-detailed information about Youth Haven’s rating is available to Charity Navigator site visitors who become registered users, another free service.

YOUTH HAVEN, INC. RECIPIENT OF THANKSGIVING GENEROSITY

Naples, FL (November 23, 2020)

Youth Haven, Inc. is a recipient of other local organizations’ generosity in honor of the Thanksgiving holiday.

St. Matthew’s House will be partnering with New Hope Ministries, in Naples, FL, to donate cooked turkeys and sides on Thanksgiving day to feed Youth Haven’s children, teens and staff. Youth Haven’s teens have offered to assist with the turkey preparations as a token of appreciation. St. Matthew’s House provides innovative solutions to fight homelessness, hunger, substance abuse, and poverty in Southwest Florida.

Youth Haven also received a $500.00 donation from Trinity-by-the-Cove Episcopal Church in Naples, Florida to be used for food purchases throughout Thanksgiving weekend. Trinity has assisted Youth Haven with Thanksgiving for the past few years; however, due to Youth Haven’s closed campus policy as a result of the pandemic, their volunteers are unable to prepare Thanksgiving meals on-site for our children and teens. The monetary donation will help significantly with feeding expenses over the holiday weekend.

Youth Haven’s food cost has increased exponentially for the year with the children and teens remaining on campus for longer periods of time for virtual learning. Financial donations to assist with the food budget are always greatly appreciated!

“Thanksgiving is a time to show gratitude and we’re so thankful for St. Matthew’s House, New Hope Ministries and Trinity-by-the-Cove’s food donations,” said Jinx Liggett, Youth Haven Executive Director. “The holidays can be a difficult time for our children and teens but knowing that the community cares really helps makes a difference. From all of us at Youth Haven, thank you!”

YOUTH HAVEN, INC. AWARDED $3,000 GRANT FROM BAILEY AND FRIENDS

Naples, FL (November 11, 2020)

Youth Haven, Inc. is pleased to announce they’re a recipient of a $3,000.00 grant from Bailey and Friends.

Bailey and Friends was established by the Golisano Foundation in November 2019 to support animal welfare for cats and dogs in Western New York and Southwest Florida. The funds received from Bailey and Friends will benefit Youth Haven’s Animal-Assisted Therapy Program, a key element of Youth Haven’s therapeutic program.

Youth Haven, founded in 1972, supports children and teens ages 6 -19 that have been removed from their homes due to abuse, neglect, abandonment or are homeless. Youth Haven is an immediate lifeline of safety, love and compassion for innocent children in crisis and the first step in a long journey back to trust, confidence and joy. Animal-Assisted Therapy is known to decrease stress levels, anxiety, depression, and blood pressure. It also improves the child and teen’s ability to communicate and socialize; improves mood; lowers stress hormones; increases self-esteem; and enables the child & teen to work on building and developing trusting relationships.

Youth Haven began their Animal-Assisted Therapy Program in 2010 with a beautiful golden retriever named Dixie. She immediately connected with our children and teens and began to develop long-lasting friendships with them. Currently, Champ and Houston carry on Dixie’s legacy and work with the children and teens of Youth Haven.  Champ, a golden retriever, was rescued by Golden Retriever Rescue of SWFL from a kill shelter in Louisiana. Houston, a black mouth cur, was surrendered to Collier County’s Domestic Animal Services. Both ‘furry therapists’ bring their own personality & style to their sessions. Champ loves to run & play, chase balls, and being outside! Houston loves to be read to, play dress-up, and go for long walks! Both dogs are around nine years old and have been part of our program for about seven years.

“Youth Haven’s two therapy dogs, Houston and Champ, play a significant role on our therapeutic campus, helping our children & teens feel happy, safe and loved. We’re so grateful for the Golisano Foundation’s support and we’re proud to be a recipient of a grant from Bailey and Friends,” said Jinx Liggett, Youth Haven Executive Director.

COMMUNITY PARTNER SPOTLIGHT

Naples, FL (October 1, 2020)

Youth Haven, Inc. was recognized in the October 1, 2020 issue of Collier County Public School’s e-newsletter, iNews. Featured in their Community Partner Spotlight section, Youth Haven shared the virtual school that they have set-up on their 25-acre therapeutic campus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

COMMUNITY PARTNERS SPOTLIGHT

Youth Haven is Southwest Florida’s only 24-hour emergency and residential shelter for children removed from their homes due to abuse, neglect, abandonment, or homelessness. Youth Haven provides home, hope, and healing to these Collier County children and teens, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This safe haven in Collier County was founded in 1972 and has met the needs of the most vulnerable youth for over 47 years. Children in the Foster Care System and Homeless Teenagers (unaccompanied youth) call Youth Haven home, serving up to 70 youth at a time. The ages of the children on their campus range from 6 to 18 years old.

Like many of us, Youth Haven has had to adjust in response to COVID-19. The organization never closed its operation during the pandemic, knowing the services were still needed. Since the youth live on its campus, Youth Haven has transitioned one of the cottages on campus to become a full-time schoolhouse connected to CCPS virtually. The youth voted on the name and logo you see above for the virtual education on their campus.

“Thank you to Collier County Public Schools and Dr. Kamela Patton, CCPS Superintendent, for featuring Youth Haven in their Community Partner Spotlight. We’re so grateful for the ongoing support that we’ve received from our community,” said Jinx Liggett, Executive Director.

The program addresses the various developmental, educational, emotional, social, physical, and mental health needs of homeless youth and utilizes individual service plans and offers life skills classes that promote independence and housing readiness.

“The Bank of America grant will allow us 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,” 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.”

YOUTH HAVEN, INC. CHILDREN & TEENS ATTEND CAMP AT NAPLES THERAPEUTIC RIDING CENTER

Naples, FL (August 18, 2020) Youth Haven children and teens had the opportunity to attend Equine Camp at the Naples Therapeutic Riding Center (NTRC) during the week of August 3 – 7, 2020.

According to NTRC’s website, “Equine-facilitated Learning (EFL) is an experiential learning approach that promotes the development of life skills for educational, professional and personal goals through equine-assisted activities.” Given the traumatic backgrounds of Youth Haven’s children and teens ages 6 – 19 that have been removed from their homes due to abuse, abandonment, neglect or are homeless, forming connections and trust with others can be difficult. The horses provide a way for our youth to interact in a way that feels safe and free of judgement! During the camp, the trainers discussed physical cues that told them if their horse was happy, sad or angry. This provided a mirror for the kids to reflect on their own behaviors, feelings, and triggers.

Also during camp, they learned how to care for their horses through grooming, cleaning the stables, feeding the horses, etc. The act of caring for their horses taught empathy, responsibility, and independence. Riding is a component of the program and is often the most anticipated activity; however, it can also be frightening because it requires trust and attunement between themselves and their horses. During the riding process, the kids were faced with situations in which their horses may not behave exactly as they would like them to. This increases cognitive flexibility, impulse control, and builds problem solving skills. For details on the program, visit https://www.naplestherapeuticridingcenter.org/

“Youth Haven is extremely grateful for our amazing partnership with Naples Therapeutic Riding Center! This was a wonderful experience for our children and teens and we’re thankful for the opportunity,” said Jinx Liggett, Youth Haven Executive Director.
