On October 2nd During the Downtown Gallery Walk, the Center for Expressive Arts and Experiential Education is holding a block party to raise money for Amy’s Place.
Amy’s Place is, is a place that offers teens an environment that fosters change, so youth can have a life of recovery and a life off the streets.
Heidi Unick, the Director of Amy's Place is the only staff right now. Opened in 2006, Amy’s Place provides food, clothing and other supplies as well as a healthy and sober environment for local disaffected youth.
They began with only 6 kids. Today the drop-in center averages about 30 to 40 kids from all different backgrounds and income levels and has welcomed 553 unduplicated youths. It is the only center of its kind in the Bellingham area. The youngest in their ranks is just 11; the oldest, 21.
So come out on October 2nd join the fun and help your community. We will have live music from local artists, open mic, games, activities for kids and much much more.
