This year (2017), Teen Services operator of Teen Haven, is celebrating 50 years of service to young people and their families. Last year (2016), the Teen Haven residential component celebrated 40 years of service to the community.
Teen Services/Teen Haven is a local registered charity, which provides comprehensive services to at-risk females, including pregnant teens, teen mothers and young women between the ages of 11-25 years old.
The agency offers social service programs such as counseling and support, prevention-focused community outreach services, and transitional housing. The agency also hosts the annual Outstanding Teen Awards, which honors and salutes Bermuda’s outstanding senior students at both public and private high schools.
For the past 40 years Teen Haven has provided temporary housing and support services to hundreds of single mothers and their children. Currently, this component operates on a 24-hour schedule, offering housing, counseling, and a parenting program, with life skills training. The program is designed to prepare the residents for effective parenting and successful independent living. The housing facility also offers a safe and stable environment that is critical to young families in transition.
One of the agency’s annual fundraising strategies is the Teen Haven Tag Day, which will be officially launched Friday, February 17th 2017 throughout the city of Hamilton and outlying parishes. To this end, Teen Haven is making a plea to the community to support this vital service, which endeavors to help young families strive towards stability and independence.
