 The Knights presented a check for $800.00 to Tina Figurelli, Executive Director at Birth Haven on Wednesday, December 18, 2013..  Some of the facts that we learned while there include:


Birth Haven has been in Newton for 28 years.  They can house 9 individuals and their babies at any given time.  They often have a waiting list.  They’ve had girls as young as 14 and in their 30s, but  most residents are between the ages of 17 and 21.  Girls are accepted at any stage of their pregnancy.  Girls can stay for 6 weeks after giving birth, but they can request a one-month extension if needed.  They currently have seven young girls.  While staying at Birth Haven the girls must work or go to school to earn a GED.
