They're back! The Holton Youth and Family Center has triumphantly returned to the Riverwest/Harambee neighborhoods, and Clarence Johnson, Katie Polace, Linda Wade, Torre Johnson, Victor Barnett, and Johnel Grimes sat down to talk with me about the resurrection of this important community and neighborhood asset. HYAFC has partnered with various organizations including Running Rebels, and Above the Clouds to bring education, arts, and leadership programming to youth.
Located on 510 E. Burleigh Street, HYAFC sits resplendant with flower boxes welcoming visitors as they enter the building. Pool tables, a library, a gym, arts programming, tutoring, and free meals are just some of the offerings of HYAFC.
