The Ground Floor

What is the Ground Floor?

The Ground Floor is a drop-in youth center that offers a safe and positive environment for all area youth. The venue includes such activities as: billiards, ping pong, foosball, video games, music, movies and board games.

The Ground Floor is a place for teens to socialize with their friends and make new friends in a non-threatening atmosphere. Teens may just drop-in or attend special events, such as: dances, birthday parties, movie nights, band nights or pool tournaments. Tutoring is also available to kids who want help with school work.

Often kids spend hours talking with staff about serious issues in their lives. The Ground Floor becomes a second home to teens that need support and guidance. The staff is readily available for kids who need someone to talk to.

The Ground Floor provides a snack bar during open hours.
