The program is offered free of chargeto youth ages 10-21 in Wake County, operating Monday through Thursday from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Haven House Services. The facility is equipped with an amateur-sized boxing ring, punching bags, rubberized flooring, and a complete weight room.

Last year, 122 youth participated in Second Round. 92% had no new or further involvement in the legal system. 77% improved their school performance.
- About Haven House: Haven House Services (www.havenhousenc.org) was founded in 1973 to provide community-based services to at-risk youth and their families in Wake County. Haven House Services grew out of an incident in 1972 that illuminated the gaps in services for struggling young people in the community. Al Dimmock, a local pastor, was volunteering in juvenile court when the court faced the case of a young girl who could not go home, was not appropriate for training school, and had no other options. This case compelled Rev. Dimmock to create a place of refuge for young people experiencing difficult circumstances. This place became Haven House Services, which was incorporated in 1973. Initially a group home for girls, a group home for boys followed in December 1975.
We look forward to seeing you there!
