Unlike these teens, most of their peers still receive help from family in these transition seasons.</p><p>Majority of these teens in foster care have a difficult time with all of these abrupt changes. They’re less likely to find a job, attend college, or even find a place to lay their head down every night.</p><p>Hope Haven of East Texas is expanding into a Supervised Independent Living Program to stand in the gap for these teens after they age out of the foster care system.</p><p>Our first home that was provided by Southern Oaks Baptist Church is called Oak Haven.&nbsp;</p><p><img class="fr-just-inserted fr-image-dropped fr-fil fr-dib" alt="Image title" src="/uploads/blog/a59231e22ca0d9336962035a5e8523d53d6339c3.png" width="300"></p><p><br></p><p><strong>"Someone somewhere is sitting in shade because someone planted an oak tree a long time ago..."&nbsp;</strong></p><p><br></p><p><br></p> Fri, 26 Mar 2021 05:00:00 +0000 Lisa Ferguson speaks at the Lindale Rotary Club <p>The week, Lisa Ferguson, center, presented the program at the weekly meeting of the Lindale Rotary Club explaining our history and future plans for Hope Heaven of East Texas.
