Relocation and Expansion Project
MY Place opened its doors in October 2018 as a Boys and Girls Club to fill a growing need in our community. In the fall of 2019 we transitioned to MY Place. We serve youth in kindergarten through 8th grade when not in school. There is no cost to participate in our program which means that ALL kids have access to an out of school opportunity. We are able to offer this resource because of the generosity of the community.
Our need has grown since opening our doors, and we would very much like to be able to continue to offer programming to ALL kids in our area. This is why the Relocation and Expansion Project is so important. Once complete, we will be able to serve over twice as many children as we can currently.
