Nathan’s Place

Nathan’s Place is a safe, drug-free supervised home-away-from-home for kids, with a kitchen, living areas, laundry facilities and a shower. For recreation there is a basketball court, exercise equipment, a major sound system, video games, pool table, foosball, movies and more.

The classroom is used daily for homework as well as for periodic instructional sessions, including character training, decision making, anger management and nutrition. In addition there are monthly activities that provide more outlets for expression and exercise of the body and mind.

Monday–Friday, a healthy meal is served at 5pm free of charge to any hungry youth.

Nathan’s Place is named in memory of Nathan Finley and is the home of the VolunTeen AOK program.
