COMMUNITY

We are more than the space inside our walls, we are a community.

 
 

We have grown community partnerships to expand our impact and our reach. Over the last several years we’ve been excited to see that the cause of supporting our young people, especially through mental health and navigating stressors, has become a top priority and topic of conversation in our community. Our goal with our partnerships and partner programs is to address these questions, build more resources, and expand our reach to help even more young people create happier, healthier lives.
