Petition Tag - house open
February 21, 2006
The Haven House was built due to the countless number of homeless and at risk teens.
It was a one year pilot project with government funding for that time.
It has been run for the last 2 years with funding from the Salvation Army and the District Social Services Administration Board but funding has been discontinued.
They want to send the teens to the Thunder Bay Shelter House where they will be amongst many older adults with drug & alcohol problems and other mental issues. Teens who have used this facility before have been threatened, raped and robbed. Several have been asked to leave for their own safety by the staff of the Shelter House. None of these incidents are ever reported to the authorites and seem to be just swept under the mat.
It is up to the community to see the saftey of the children by keeping the Haven House open and demand we get proper funding to do so.
