Support Our Adolescents
I HAV Resources has 10 programs that will focus around Homelessness amongst families, adolescences, and veterans. Homelessness is not just about being provided with shelter, we believe that homelessness is a state in which a person could lose their or lack of shelter due to life events, tragedy, or some form of abuse. 7 of the 10 programs will be available for adolescences to take advantage of.
Program Name: I HAV Shelter
Focus: Make sure all children and families with children have shelter
Problem: A lot of adolescents are forced to live in conditions their parents have available. Being under 18 years of age most young adults, teens, and children cannot get jobs to help pay the rent/ mortgage or other bills.
Solution: I HAV Shelter is a program that provides a place to live to all its members with children and who are children. All homeless individuals and families will be assisted in getting shelter, rooms, or homes. If someone is mentally disabled, we will assist those individuals that qualify for certain programs to live in group homes or where their situation best suits them. We will help all low-income families apply and understand what programs they qualify for to receive living assistance. Temporary housing will be provided to families and individuals displaced due to natural disasters or evicted due to a major life event. I HAV Resources plans to not only work with organizations that provide these services but plan to own buildings to provide for even more assistance nationwide and beyond.
Program Name: I HAV Clothing
Focus: Provide clothing for children and teens as well as uniforms for school.
Problem: Our homeless, recently displaced, and our low-income families need clothing for a number of reasons, but due to kids growing every year, losing their belonging in a major event, or worst they cannot keep up with the need. Children of all ages need clothes for different events, occasions, and times of the year.
Solution: I HAV Clothing is a program that provides all assist families with children of all ages with clothing for all occasions and seasons.
Program Name: I HAV Food
Focus: Providing breakfast and dinner to children on school days and lunch on non-school days.
Problem: Lunch is usually the only meal provided for free at school
Solution: I HAV Food is a program that partners with local soup kitchens, food pantries, food banks, and other charities and nonprofit organizations that assist in feeding and delivering free food to those individuals and families who are less fortunate or homeless.
Program Name: I HAV Transportation
Focus: Providing transportation to school, daycare, and where ever else.
Problem: Most low income & homeless families and parents have an issue picking up their children from school, dropping them off, and more.
Solution: I HAV Transportation is a program that will help families and individuals that are in need of transportation to work, home, childcare, and anywhere else they cannot get to and from safely.
Program Name: I HAV Education
Focus: Making sure all children finish school and get a proper education.
Problem: Most individuals in low-income communities do not know how to finish or continue their education.
Solution: I HAV Resources works with schools and institutions to assist in teaching all members a new trade that will help all adolescents finish getting their High School Diploma, apply to colleges, apply for grants, and more to further their education as much as possible.
Program Name: I HAV Support
Focus: Provide assistance and mentorship to all the youth members.
Problem: The majority of homeless and low-income families do not know what’s available to them or cannot afford others.
Solution: I HAV Support is a program that partners with local lawyers, doctors, counselors, dentists, schools, local governments, businesses, charities, barbers, and many more individuals looking to donate their time for our members. We also understand Individuals and families are suffering from some form of abuse if it’s substance abuse, physical abuse, or more. I HAV Support will also help our members clean their records, give them a number for jobs to call, give them email and internet access, as well as update their resumes for them. I HAV Support will help its members blend in and stand out in a positive way. All members suffering from abuse will receive the help they need thanks to our partners. I HAV Resources’ ultimate goal with I HAV Support is to bring out the potential of each member so when getting jobs they have the same odds if not better than the next candidate.
Program Name: I HAV Security
Focus: Keeping members and their belongings safe
Problem: The Homeless population has to travel everywhere they go with their belonging so they aren’t thrown away, destroyed, or stolen. Homeless kids and women are always in harm’s way when due to lack of policing for the homeless.
Solution: I HAV Security is a very simple program, we provide protection of each member’s belongings. We also plan on making a safe environment for each member regardless if they have suffered some sort of abuse in the past.
