The Children's Haven of Southwest Missouri received a $15,000 grant on Thursday. The grant is from the Children's Trust Fund, which shares in the mission of Children's Haven, to strengthen families and prevent child abuse and neglect.
The shelter celebrates it's 10-year-anniversary this year and executive director Stephanie Theis says the grant will help them all year in helping those who arrive to the shelter.
"Children's Haven is here for families," says Theis. "When there's a crisis in the family we're a safe place for the kids to come and stay and receive some nurturing care."
Children's Haven is an organization that serves kids 17 and under in need.
