Our Programs

Haven House Services runs 11 programs that help more than 1,200 youth each year who are homeless, in crisis, or facing significant life challenges. They are:

  • Wrenn House – The only homeless, runaway, and crisis intervention program and shelter for youth ages 10-17 in the Triangle
  • Street Outreach – Provides homeless and street dependent youth ages 16-24 with food, hygiene kits, skill-building courses, case management, and referrals to needed services. We are the designated “point of entry” agency in the community to assist youth under the age of 24 experiencing homelessness.
  • Transition in Place – Helps homeless youth ages 18-24 and their minor dependents (if applicable) move into transitional housing services
  • Juvenile Diversion Team – Works with youth and families not currently involved in the juvenile justice system who have problems, such as truancy, not complying with rules at home, and/or running away
  • Juvenile Assessment Team – Conducts screenings and comprehensive clinical assessments for youth currently involved in the juvenile justice system and makes referrals for youth to recommended service providers
  • Gang Reduction and Intervention Team – Uses a combination of intensive case management along with individual and family counseling to help curb gang activity in youth at risk for gang involvement or youth who are currently gang-involved.
  • Multi-Systemic Therapy – Partners with youth and their families to provide an evidence-based treatment program in an effort to strengthen the family unit and ensure that youth can successfully remain in their homes and/or communities
  • Restitution and Community Service – Allows diverted and court-involved youth to perform supervised community service hours and/or earn restitution to benefit victims
  • Second Round – Uses boxing, fitness, and exercise to teach youth involved in delinquent or at-risk behaviors self-discipline, teamwork, leadership, healthy living, and other pro-socialization elements
  • Community Alternatives Program – Provides intensive case management, intensive monitoring, family support, and services for youth currently at-risk for placement in detention or pending release from detention
  • Youth Career Options – Works with youth ages 15-20 to help them identify strengths and career interests and build soft skills needed for job readiness and success
