OPEN HOUSE

The small Port Angeles Unit located in the housing authority has been bursting at the seams for more than a year, averaging 90 kids per day. The solution; broaden services!  The adjacent duplex and site of the Clubhouse several years ago, was reclaimed and converted to a space suited for teens. The newly opened center currently alleviates pressure on the main Club by offering members ages 13 and up a space of their own.  Members worked hard to, clean, organize, and paint, quickly laying claim to the space like only a teenager can!  Grants were awarded to the Clubs' from OneFamily Foundation ($10,000) Sound Community Foundation ($5,000) and the Walkling Trust  ($1,000) to convert the space and add a dedicated computer lab for this age group. 
Members have been attending the Club since elementary school, find themselves looking for that place to belong.
