Lisa Fecteau talks to Sue Rutkofske about The Harbor’s mission helping at-risk, runaway, and homeless youth in our community.
We had a wonderful time on our trip to Detroit to see the Detroit Institute of Arts, and a lovely dinner in Greek town to a restaurant called Pegasus.
We took the new Q line streetcar up Woodward to get to the DIA. There was even a fashion show in progress when we arrived! We started off in the ancient Greek section of the museum where residents spent time identifying gods and goddesses from Greek mythology in images on pottery, and discussed classical influences on the Renaissance and neo classical periods.
We worked our way through the baroque period, early American art, contemporary, and ancient collections from Africa, Asia and the Middle East. We then took the Q line and the people mover back to Greek town and enjoyed Greek kasseri cheese (Aka “Opa!”), fried squid, spannakopita, gyros, and a baked dish similar to lasagne. We sampled delicious deserts like pistachio cheesecake, and baklava.
Then we stopped at an amazing bakery called “Astoria” which some kind folks on the streetcar had told us about. Thank you so much for this amazing experience!!

Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week is a nationally recognized week where people who are able try to bring awareness to people who are homeless and or food insecure and help them.
The Harbor teen shelter has a new kitchen thanks to a $20,000 grant from the Community Foundation of St. Clair County.
To go along with the $7,500 that was granted to Comprehensive Youth Services, this year the Community Foundation donated the entire youth home to the organization.
