I like to read articles like this.
It is nice to know that there are people out there helping at risk youth...not just pushing them aside.

I think this is a great article, it shows that even in today's society of thinking of ones own needs, there are still people and services that are looking to give back to the community, and help those who need it.

I think that this is a great service, that is being used to not only help these teens, but also to propel them into the future. This is great.

It is nice to see how successful Hidden Treasures has become. I remember working at Allendale around the time they ran a contest to come up with a name for the brand new store. I remember the person who came up with the winning name. Unfortunately, she is no longer on this earth, but the name she chose will live on. Hidden Treasures is one of the many great programs Allendale has to offer its residents, as well as the day school programs for the children.
