Naples, Fl (January 12, 2022). Youth Haven, Inc. is pleased to announce they received a $250,000 grant from The Schoen Foundation.
The funds will benefit Youth Haven’s Homeless Teen Transitional Living Program (HTTLP), the only program in Collier County for youth experiencing homelessness and needing assistance in making a successful transition to self-sufficient and sustainable living.
