Point's youth program sees expansion

(Continued)

Construction, which will double the size of the first floor, is scheduled to be completed this winter.

“This will allow us to do different activities with different groups of kids,” said Lister. “We just need the ability to spread out so kids can do more clinical activities, more (community) service and more fun stuff.”

Since the On Point program began, Rocheville said there have been more activities for young people and fewer signs of vandalism in the adjacent park.

“I think it’s having a big impact on the neighborhood,” he said.
