Boys’ Haven is a general residential operation in Beaumont, Texas that serves boys ages 5 to 17 and provides a port for stormy times in the boys’ lives. Many of these boys come from single parent homes and are in need of a more structured environment. Some are referred by Juvenile Probation Departments and the Department of Family and Protective Services. The program is based on the principles of discipline and hard work, a program where natural consequences occur and privileges are earned. Boys Haven has been in operation for more than 70 years.
The organization will use the $1000 Givers Gain® Grant to enroll its residents in the Equine Therapy Summer Program provided by Stable Spirit. The therapy is designed for those who have suffered some form of abuse or neglect in their lives. The boys learn about themselves and others by participating in activities with horses and discussing thoughts, beliefs, behaviors and patterns. The BNI Foundation is proud to support Boy’s Haven and the fine work they do.
