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.
