A Twin Ports organization that helps homeless and street youth is expanding.
Life House officials say a new building has been bought, which is located adjacent to the organization's current location in the downtown area.
The building, located on N. 1st Avenue West, was the former home of Cooper's Engraving.
The expansion will be the new home for the Legitimate Hustle Program, which helps give youth an opportunity to learn about entrepreneurship and small business, while also creating and running a social enterprise.
"Life House is just super excited for the opportunity for expansion, and being able to work with more youth, and them to be able to [develop] skills... to succeed in the work force," says Life House Communication Officer Margie Nelson, "and we want them to be able to succeed, and this space will allow more youth to have that opportunity."
Life House has been helping youth in the Twin Ports area since 1991.
