Behind our iconic red doors on Main Street is a place where kids receive help, love, food, and programming that addresses their unique needs. Our center depends upon the financial support and in-kind contributions of many local organizations, businesses, and individuals. Each year the number of youth who enjoy MPTC services increases. The cost to provide a teen with a hot meal, a safe, warm, caring space and a variety of enrichment programs for the year is $960. Each kid has access to 1,300 hours of specialized programming and 260 hot, well-balanced meals per year.

There are many ways of supporting My Place Teen Center. Your support will help ensure that MPTC is here for each and every kid who needs us. Since we are a 501(c)3, not for profit organization, your gift is tax deductible.
