‘Jeans and Jewels’ Event To Benefit Place of Hope at Haven

A new era begins at The Haven.

On Friday, November 8, The Haven, a local foster home care facility, will enter a new phase of serving the community with the “Jeans and Jewels” event at the Boca Raton Resort & Club.

Earlier this year, The Haven, Inc., donated it’s assets to the Place of Hope, the largest provider of faith-based foster care and services for children in the dependency system, pregnant teens, victims of domestic minor sex trafficking, and those who have “aged out” of the foster care system.

The Haven, located on Boca Rio Road, is now part of this system and will re-open later this year as “Place of Hope at The Haven Campus.”

The Haven has a rich history in Boca Raton, first opening in 1976 to serve the needs of runaway children. For the next 36 years the Haven served over 1,000 children ages 9-17. In February, The Haven’s directors voted to have Place of Hope continue the mission and maintain ownership over the 14 acre campus.

“Jeans and Jewels” is a chance to support this terrific charity.

The event starts at 6:30 p.m. and will include a silent auction followed by dinner, a live auction, and dancing in the Royal Ballroom.

Executive Director Charles Bender is excited about the future.

“At Place of Hope at The Haven Campus, we plan to provide faith-based, family-style foster care for sibling groups and other special needs foster children,” Bender said.  “We’ll also provide case management, therapy, tutoring and mentoring, life-skills training, and community involvement.”
