The Harbor teen shelter has a new kitchen thanks to a $20,000 grant from the Community Foundation of St. Clair County.
Hale Walker, a member of the foundation’s grant committee, said the passion of The Harbor’s program director Sally Currie put its application over the top.
“I believe we can prevent kids from becoming involved in the system,” Currie said. “I don’t want to see kids go through the system.”
The Harbor provides housing, counseling and other services for young people ages nine through 17.
