The Haven Project

A Brief History

Founded in 2011, The Haven Project was established to address a gap in services to unaccompanied homeless young adults in Lynn and surrounding communities. We provide direct service to more than 300 homeless unaccompanied youth ages 17-24 each year, with referrals to other youth serving organizations for hundreds more who don’t meet intake criteria based on age, homelessness or other factors.

The Haven Project is well known as a key advocate and provider of unique and age-appropriate services to homeless young adults on the North Shore. It continues to grow in the number of clients assisted and programs are expanding to meet the growing and complex needs of the homeless young adult population.
