Sea Haven Inc. recently hosted a groundbreaking ceremony for its new shelter home in Little River, which will allow space to accommodate more youth. There is more acreage also to expand with an administrative office and a recreation building for Sea Haven to continue meeting the needs of youth in the community.
Sea Haven offers temporary, residential services to runaway, homeless, at-risk youth from ages 13 to 22 through four program components: Emergency Shelter, Transitional Living Program, Street Outreach Center Project Lighthouse and Project Safe Place. The shelter is licensed by the S.C. Department of Social Services and is a family-style household with a structured environment and daily activities for the youth in residence.
Sea Haven will need sponsorships and donations from the community. For information, visit www.seahaveninc.com or call Christina Jackson or Sarah Brown at 399-4045/3125.
