Renovations to our new Safe Connections Resource Center are complete, and thanks to a generous donation from Leadership St. Pete Class of 2020 we are ready to transform the inside space into a safe welcoming place to serve homeless youth in our community.
Once again the team at our SafePlace2B teen shelter in Clearwater is spending the summer introducing the kids in our care to a great big world of different experiences, ideas, cultures and people through global travel. Each week they will be "traveling" to a new country to learn, experience and discuss all aspects of life in that part of the world.
This week they focused on Germany, which included a video call from a family member of one of our staff living in Berlin. She took the kids on a tour of the city while they asked questions about the people, cars, police, schools and all the things they saw throughout her neighborhood. She even took them on a tram ride and ordered a donut and apple juice in German at a bakery.
Ms. Sue cooked a delicious meal that included bratwurst, saurkraut and apple strudel.
Thanks to Saxon, Kristin, Sue and the whole team at our Clearwater shelter for using your enthusiasm and talent to bring a global perspective to the kids in our care. ... See MoreSee Less
