People have the opportunity to support Youth Unlimited during its grand opening festivities this weekend.
YFC / Youth Unlimited St. Catharines, a non-profit organization relying solely on donations, is a faith-based program that offers weekly drop-in and teen support programs at its new Deck Youth Centre.
Rose Price, ministry staff at the 226 Merritt St. centre, says the organization has been around for decades at various locations.
Its building at the corner of Merrit and Bessey Sts. was bought nearly 3½ years ago and is finally ready to be opened to the public.
Youth Unlimited’s celebratory weekend kicked off Thursday with a breakfast for community business members followed by an afternoon ribbon-cutting ceremony.
