Haven Academy Receives a 2016-2019 New York State Charter School Dissemination Grant

We have some very exciting news to share!


The Foundling’s Mott Haven Academy Charter School has been awarded a 2016-2019 New York State Charter School Dissemination Grant!


This federally funded grant will enable Haven Academy to document and share their school’s culture and trauma sensitive design with the broader public school community. Many charter schools applied for this grant and only eight were selected. We are extremely proud that Haven Academy is among the recipients and look forward to having other schools turn to them for guidance and expertise on educating youth who have experienced trauma, abuse and neglect at home. Each of the schools selected will receive up to $500,000 for the three-year project period.
