Gideon and Jack's Story "We feel comfortable letting our kids go to The Teen Center after school when we can’t be with them. We had many concerns about transitioning our children to middle school, but at the Teen Center it’s okay for kids their age to be kids. They’re moving toward more independence in a place where they are safe, supervised, and actively engaged. The “O” boys agree: “The staff understand kids very well,” “They make a place that anyone my age can enjoy,” “It’s a fun place to go, where we feel like we belong.” Read more inspiring stories!
