We want to thank Community Mental Health Authority of Clinton, Eaton, and Ingham Counties for recognizing Youth Haven as their 2022 Distinguished Service Award recipient!

CMHA-CEI works with kids who are dealing with the effects of childhood trauma. It truly is an honor to be an advocate for the children they serve, and to be a resource that many of their staff have been able to utilize through the years.

Paul Brooks is a Senior Mental Health Worker with Families Forward, a division of CMHA-CEI. Paul has been scheduling kids in his care to come to Youth Haven for more than 25 years! He says, “The feedback that I get from therapists and parents about the kids’ experiences are so positive. All of the fun activities that kids get to do on a daily basis makes me want to continue doing this.”


It’s affirming for us to know that organizations like CMHA-CEI recognize the value of our programs and see a positive impact in the lives of the children they serve. Receiving this recognition is a blessing, and your support helps make it all possible!
