Youth Programs

Haven practices a holistic, client-centered approach, which allows youth to control their level of interaction with peers and promotes individual empowerment in a group setting.

For almost 20 years, Haven has provided youth-specific services for children and teens affected by domestic and sexual violence. Our keystone intervention programs are Kids Count!, Teens Count! and T.R.U.S.T.

We also offer prevention-oriented versions of Kids Count! and Teens Count! for youth whose histories of victimization are unknown.

If you are interested in enrolling your child/teen in one of our youth programs, please CALL 209-524-4331 OR email us at: youth@havenwcs.org
