PostSubject: The story of Youth Safe Haven - out history   Fri Jul 15, 2016 2:37 pm

As we approach our one year anniversary in August, I thought I would give you all the history of how Youth Safe Haven was created, and why we created our forum and chat room.

Last year, unbeknownst to my mom, my siblings, or myself, the youngest member of our family, Jakob, who was 12 at the time decided he was going to go in a few chat rooms. Needless to say, a chat room unmonitored is not the safest place for a blond haired boy of 12 to be in, without someone supervising the other members inside the chat room.
After getting several inappropriate private messages, which we were told about, Jakob’s chat room participation came to an abrupt halt.

Later, after talking to some of his friends, Jakob told me that many kids his age, and some older had similar experiences, whether it be chat rooms online, or gaming sites with other players. Jakob said “it would be nice to have a place where we could go online, and chat to other kids from Illinois, and even have a place to post pictures, and put on music we like. But it would have to be safe or my friends parents would not let them go there”.
It was then that Rhiannon, my friend Adam, Jakob and I, decided to create our own site, a place where kids could go have fun, talk to their friends, and be safe. So, what better way to insure a safe forum and chat room, then to create it ourselves.

So together, we decided upon the name, and Youth Safe Haven was created and put online on August 2nd, 2015, at 7:25 pm.

Heaven on earth is looking at my little boy. The minute he was born, I knew if I never did anything other than being a dad, I'd be fine.

Having been a Moderator here in the beginning, I think the creation of Youth Safe Haven has benefited a lot of kids and teens.
Although I am not that active as in my posting a lot, I do check the forum a lot, and enjoy reading what many of you post here.

I think Jakob should have been listed as a founder from the beginning, but I am happy he is listed with Ryan and Rhiannon now.

Plain and simple, Youth Safe Haven saved my life. After being abused and feeling helpless, I wandered into this site one night because some kids at the junior high were talking about it. I was on the verge of suicide at that time of my life, I just had not decided when to end it. But I checked this site out, and the first thing I saw were the bold yellow numbers under the youth help section, and after deciding I had no place else to turn, I called one of them.

That decision to make that call is why I am here today, along with the words of encouragement, and help from Ryan and Rhiannon.
