â€śThis is the only shelter of its kind in the city of Savannah and Chatham County,â€ť said Cynthia Wright, incoming president of the Savannah Jaycees. â€śPark Place Outreach encourages youth between the ages of 11 and 17 to come to their house if they are not safe in their home or do not have any place to go. We felt that during the holiday season, this organization is one that the entire Savannah community should rally behind.â€ť
Since opening in 1984, over 6,200 at-risk youth have been served by the organization.
â€śWe usually hold a tacky Christmas sweater party, but we all wanted to do something different this year,â€ť said Wright. â€śAs 2016 comes to a close, we hope to celebrate another successful year and raise a glass to the possibilities for the next one. Our young professional organization has a lot of momentum behind our projects, and we canâ€™t wait to see what 2017 will bring.â€ť
