Seabury Barn (Smith Haven Ministries)

Seabury Barn is a short-term group home for adolescents in Suffolk County, located in Stony Brook, New York, and administered under auspices of Smith Haven Ministries, Inc., an "ecumenical" social service agency sponsored by several major religious denominations and based in a large indoor shopping mall in Suffolk. The Barn program began operations in January, 1973, on the basis of an LEAA grant which funded the Barn as well as an ongoing youth program of the Ministries.
