The Answer For Youth is a drop in center that serves homeless and at risk teens and disadvantaged young adults. They have been open 5 years now. TAFY was founded with Christian principles, and the founders frequently find opportunities to share their faith with the clients. They believe in a very personal ministry with the youth. In the 5 years they have been open, they have gone from around 5 youths a night to up to 70 at times! They serve hot food, have a washer and dryer, a shower, full clothes closet, and offer a variety of classes.
For 4 years now, they have been cultivating an organic garden, so one of the classes is on cooking the food from the garden! They offer help with medical expenses like prescriptions, eye glasses and first aid. They provide celebrations for holidays, baby showers and birthdays. They are located at 711 E 2nd Street.
