Yukon Girls Rock believes communities can heal themselves. Direction for Youth & Families completed a feasibility study with positive results for a capital campaign allowing us to expand our Youth Center into the Community Center on the Crestview Manor, Indianapolis. Yukon Girls Rock, through our journey and leadership in treating trauma and our success with after-school programs, plans to combine our expertise and draw from the innovative work and research.
In addition to providing programming that has made our Youth Center so effective in working with at-risk youth, we plan to implement components to promote community development. The Community Center will provide a place where community members may gather and open a dialogue with one another, build a supportive community and meet in collaboration with community providers of services – all in support of our goal of restoring this community.
