The first work day at the Homeless Youth Resource Center was a major success! We had a fantastic turnout and everyone worked so hard! The space looks great and the contractors will be in there soon to work their magic.
Check back soon for photos from today’s work day!
Here’s all the latest scoop on what we have been calling the drop-in center. To avoid confusion with the adult drop-in centers in town, we’re using the name Homeless Youth Resource Center until the kids pick a name for the center.
Work Day #1: is Saturday November 19th 9-3. More info here: http://www.volunteerkansas.com/Opportunities/Opportunity/328:Cleanup_Day_For_Daytime_Resource_Center_for_Homeless_Youth_
Items still needed for the center:
If you can help with any of these items or if your church or business would like to host a donation drive or “angel tree” please email firstname.lastname@example.org
After this Saturday’s work day, the contractors will be in there working hard to get everything ready for us to move in later in December. The target move-in date and community work day is Dec. 17th, 2011.

And last but not least, a HUGE thanks to some of the many people working hard to make all of this happen!
We have the green light on the few issues we were waiting on to move forward with the drop-in center!!
