Following the announcement of David & Margaret's merger with Haynes Family of Programs in November 2021, both organizations have continued to adapt and thrive, providing the best care possible to the community's most vulnerable children, youth, and families. In this edition of our newsletter, we highlight the successes of each program and celebrate coming together to serve more youth in more ways than ever!
This partnership greatly expands the ability to provide essential services and programs to children with specialized needs, transitional youth, and young families so that one day they may experience personal independence.
This month, the La Verne Chamber celebrated their 2021 Excellence in La Verne Awards. David & Margaret Youth and Family Services was honored to receive the award for Non-Profit of the Year for excellence in providing critical services and supporting at-risk communities during the coronavirus pandemic. David & Margaret was recognized for the broadening of services with the opening of COMPASS Point which supports young adults with a history of foster care, demonstrating creativity and innovation in meeting the needs of the La Verne community, promoting volunteerism, demonstrating growth and stability, and making a worthwhile impact on society and individuals.
The merging of these two organizations will expand the breadth and depth of services provided to foster youth, students with disabilities, and families in need of therapeutic support.
