The mission of Robyne’s Nest is to provide at-risk & homeless students, who have little to no parental support, in the Huntington Beach, Costa Mesa and Newport Beach communities, with the resources and support to get the academic, financial, and life skills to complete high school and pursue a path to self-sufficiency through college, trade school or military options. Students commit to always be drug, alcohol, and crime-free in our program.
Robyne’s Nest was created by Robyne Wood, a Huntington Beach wife and mother of two children, to help provide funds and resources for Huntington Beach school administrators to take care of these students and create a path to the successful completion of high school. This is a proactive approach to keep our youth away from drugs, crime, homelessness, human trafficking, and early parenthood. We want to re-write their story for a better future.
There is increased awareness of students struggling when it comes to basic support from their parents for such needs as food, housing, academics, and even safety. The answer is not as simple as calling the police or CPS. Many of these students want help and that is why they continue to go to school looking for some security, routine and a place to belong.
We have the opportunity and responsibility, as a community, to take care of these students and not leave them behind!
