BANK OF AMERICA GRANT TO SUPPORT HOMELESS TEENS

Naples, Fl (December 9, 2021).

Youth Haven, Inc. is pleased to announce they received a $7,500.00 grant from Bank of America.

The funds will benefit Youth Haven’s Rapid Re-Housing Program (RRHP) and Homeless Teen Transitional Living Program (HTTLP). RRHP helps provide affordable housing options for youth aging out of our shelter who face homelessness. HTTLP is the only program in Collier County for youth experiencing homelessness and needing assistance in making a successful transition to self-sufficient and sustainable living. HTTLP addresses the various developmental, educational, emotional, social, physical, and mental health needs of homeless youth, utilizes individual service plans, and offers life skills classes that promote independence and housing readiness.

“The generous funding we received from Bank of America will enable us to continue to help homeless teens transition to safe, healthy, and responsible adulthood,” says Linda Goldfield. “We’re extremely thankful for Bank of America’s support.”
