Reaching out to our community
The Women’s Business Connection (WBC) is very active in the community and in 1996 adopted their first community outreach partner, the YWCA of Chester County. Since that time WBC has been involved and supported several organizations. Whether it was through a clothing drive for the Career Wardrobe, fundraising efforts, or physical labor provided to assist the first ever Habitat for Humanity Women Build in Chester County, WBC members have reached out to our partners delivering the support they need.
The 2023-2024 Community Outreach Partner
At A Haven we support grieving children with a family-centered approach. We acknowledge that empowering families to walk through grief together is an important piece in supporting a grieving child. Research now reveals that the number one determining factor on how a child grieves is how the parent/guardians grieve. In addition, family communication and a healthy environment can lessen the burden of grief. Knowing these factors, our focus is to support and equip these trusted adults to lead their children through grief in a healthy trust-building way and navigate grief together as a family. While also providing a safe place for children, teens, and young adults to know they are not alone in their grief.
