Geneva Rucker and Dianna Betancourt

GL Homes Project Manager Dianna Betancourt spread Christmas cheer this holiday season. Dianna organized a holiday gift drive for the children and teens ages seven to 17 who live at Youth Haven in Naples. Dianna and her daughter, Adysen, delivered the gifts the week before Christmas.
Founded in 1972, Youth Haven was established to fulfill an immediate need for emergency shelter for children who had been removed suddenly from a traumatic home situation. A group of caring local individuals worked together with law enforcement and community partners to create a safe space for children. Youth Haven protects and empowers children and teens in Southwest Florida through comprehensive care and community collaboration.
