9/14/2018 - Lupinacci Thanks Flanagan for Securing $10,000 for Huntington Sanctuary Project, Serving At-Risk Youth

Huntington – Supervisor Chad A. Lupinacci thanked New York State Senator John Flanagan for securing $10,000 in State aid to help support the Huntington Sanctuary Project, which serves at-risk youth in the Town.


“The Town thanks Senator Flanagan for his ongoing support,” said Supervisor Lupinacci. “More at-risk kids will now be able to access much-needed services from the Sanctuary Project, which can produce life-changing results.”


“The Huntington Sanctuary Project is essential in providing young people in our area with much-needed assistance when they are at their most vulnerable and when they may have no one else to turn to. I applaud the Huntington Youth Bureau and Supervisor Lupinacci for being there for these young men and women and am glad to help them continue their important mission with this program,” stated Senator Flanagan.


As part of the Town’s Youth Bureau, the Huntington Sanctuary Project provides crisis intervention, hotline services, individual, group, and family counseling, parenting groups, independent living programs and short-term emergency housing for at-risk youth, ages 12-21, in the Town of Huntington.


The $10,000 in state aid will offset the cost of operating expenses such as program supplies, educational materials, and the hotline.


Sanctuary Project has been serving youth since 1978. All services are free of charge, confidential, and open to Huntington township residents.
