A Safe Place...
Did you know that every 24 hours more than 15,000 teens in the US use drugs for the first time. Every two hours a youth is murdered and every four minutes a youth is arrested for an alcohol-related crime?
For those who may be left alone after school or on the streets with no guidance, the Club is a safe place for kids to play and interact with their peers, to learn more about themselves and to be under the supervision of trained and caring Youth Development Professionals.
