Recent Successes and Current Challenges
Recently we have been having kids ride the bus or just come drive out from Port Angeles to Forks, 60 miles around a curvy lake road and over a mountain to use our Teen Center. They are fun kids who skateboard and have given us many compliments about the Teen Center and how great it was to have an indoor skating ramp. We are seeing an increase in the amount of teens coming to the teen center and accessing the meals and supervised activities we have to offer in these rough economic times.
We are seeing an increase in people who need caregiving at home in order to live in the least restrictive environment and who want to retain their independence as much as possible and for as long as possible. As the funding dries up for services this may become a very critical need that impacts our communities.
