New Orleans Conference

September 25-28, 2012

Sea Haven proudly accepted the ‘Model Program of the Year’ award for the Sea Haven’s Transitional Living Program. Sea Haven also received the ‘Most Outstanding Safe Site’ award for Chris’ Pizza, who has been a longtime supporter of the Sea Haven programs.

Sea Haven staff attended the week conference and interacted with professionals from all over the states to learn more best practices in the field of human services. We thoroughly enjoyed the visit to New Orleans, as we met new friends, made new contacts, and learned how to provide more effective services for youth.

The Executive Director continues to serve on the Youth and Family Services Network Board of Directors for over five years and represents organizations from South Carolina. The Board of Directors also facilitated a workshop lead by organization executives intended as an opportunity for leaders to share perspectives, learnings, and solutions. The intent was to encourage executives and other leaders to share strategies on building and maintaining resilient organizations that can continue to meet missions while adapting to changing times, economies, and community needs.


Donate Your Time and Talent!

Anyone, with a passion for music, interested in teaching young folks how to play musical instruments such as the guitar or piano, Sea Haven needs your help!  Individuals and Dogwood Hill Baptist Church in Loris graciously donated a piano and a guitar to help our youth express their hidden talents.  Please contact Robin Reynolds, TLP Program Director at 843-315-8626 or email if you would like to volunteer your time to mentor youth in this area.
