Sea Haven Safe Place Program


As the Grand Strand’s only Safe Place Program Provider, Sea Haven provides access to immediate help and supportive resources for all youth in Horry County. As an Horry County community initiative, our Sea Haven Safe Place Program designates schools, fire stations, libraries, and other youth-friendly organizations as Safe Place locations. Designated Safe Place locations in Horry County display the yellow and black Safe Place sign, as the universal symbol of youth safety.

When teens find themselves in crisis or need a place to stay, knowing how and where to get help is critical. Through Safe Place immediate help is never too far away, thanks to our 130+ local Safe Place Site partners who step into this role to act as a safety net and serve as a gateway to Sea Haven support for at risk youth.

Love & Logic Classes

Sea Haven now offers FREE monthly classes on “Parenting with Love and Logic” based on the Love & Logic parenting model.

Whether you are a single parent, married couple, blended family, or going through a divorce, attending this interactive parenting class is right for you. Classes are for parents with children of any age and the techniques are simple and easy to learn. And it is FREE!

The Love and Logic model is a 30-year-old philosophy of raising and teaching children which allows adults to be happier, empowered, and more skilled in the interactions with children. Love and Logic is a way of working with children that puts parents and teachers back in control, teaches children to be responsible, and prepares young people to live in the real world, with its many choices and consequences.

The “Parenting with Love and Logic” sessions begin the first Tuesday of every month from 5:30-7:00 pm. Sessions will continue weekly each Tuesday evening at the same time and will end after 4 weeks.  Participants who complete all 4 workshops will receive an official “Certificate of Participation”.

Due to requirements related to social distancing, Love and Logic sessions will be held virtually via Zoom. However, we hope to hold these sessions in person in the near future.

To Register:

Simply email with name and phone number and we will follow up with confirmation information and the virtual session link.

Participants will receive 8 credit hours after completion of all 4 classes. Credits are applicable for foster parents seeking recertification.
