DETROIT – The Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan selected HAVEN of Bingham Farms, as the recipient of the 2015 Richard F. Huegli Award for Program Excellence. As part of the award, HAVEN will receive a one-time grant of $5,000 to support general operations.
“Receiving this honor is a testament to the great work of our board, staff and donors and their commitment to our clients, as we work to eliminate domestic violence and sexual assault in our community,” said Beth Morrison, president and CEO of HAVEN.
The award annually recognizes a nonprofit that reflects Huegli’s vision, high standards in human services programming and belief in human potential. Huegli served in the region’s human services sector for nearly half a century before his death in 1988.
Founded in 1975, HAVEN is Oakland County’s only agency dedicated to the treatment and prevention of domestic violence and sexual assault. It also provides shelter, advocacy and educational programming to nearly 30,000 people each year at multiple sites.
