Youth shelter gets $190,000 for children

Rep. Dana Rohrabacher presented the Huntington Youth Shelter with

a $190,000 award that will help disadvantaged children pursue higher


The shelter was given the award by the California Department of

Education's Talent Search Program, which is designed to identify and

help youth with troubled backgrounds who have the potential to

succeed in higher education.

The goal of the program is to increase the number of students who

graduate from high school and enroll in college.

The Huntington Youth Shelter will prove academic, career and

financial counseling to students who plan to attend college. The

shelter will also help high school dropouts return to the school so

they can complete their education.
