Holly Area Youth Assistance

Strengthening Youth and Families through Community Involvement

What is HAYA

Holly Area Youth Assistance is a community-based prevention organization developed by volunteers who live and/or work in the greater Holly Area School District community.  HAYA is cosponsored by Holly Area Schools, the Townships of Groveland, Holly, Rose and Springfield as well as Oakland County Circuit Court - Family Division. Additional funding is obtained through grant and local fund-raising efforts.

Holly Area Youth Assistance provides low cost, confidential, short-term, family-centered counseling and referral service for local young people (under the age of 18) and their families.  The focus is on the whole family and not just the incident that brings the family to Youth Assistance.  Like other HAYA services, casework services aspire to reduce the incidence of delinquency, abuse and neglect through volunteer involvement.
