We know how to have fun in the sun!

The PAL Youth Safe Haven's Summer Experience program takes PAL members on field trips all over New England. Each PAL youth earns their spot on the bus through participation and positive activities. As you can see, we know how to have a good time!

Bagging the Butts

Did you know that cigarette butts take up to 10 years to decompose? The PAL kids did some community service to clean up the cigarette litter at Los Amigos Park as part of #BagtheButts2021 🚮

One PAL parent commented:

"God bless PAL for helping them have values and responsibilities. They are learning so much! ❤"

Celebrating Jenn's 11 Years with PAL

We are so grateful for Jenn and her unwavering dedication to PAL youth.

Miss Jenn (as the PAL kids call her) serves as PAL's Family Support Specialist. She grew up and raised her family in the Tree Streets, right near where the PAL Youth Safe Haven is located. Jenn's knowledge of the area and families is very beneficial to the PAL program and kids.

Read on for an example of Jenn's impact!

Jenn was walking to the store when she saw a PAL mom clearly in distress. Through the language barrier, Jenn was able to figure out that her daughter (a PAL member) hadn't gotten off the bus at the right stop. Jenn jumped into action and called the bus company for an update and plan. The PAL mom was relieved that Jenn could help her access the resources and give her support during the stressful time. Thankfully, the PAL kid was tracked down quickly and everyone had a big hug!
