Community Foundations Help Brighten Ryves Youth Center

The Wabash Valley Community Foundation and Catholic Community Foundation both provided funding to clean, level, seal, and protect the floor in the basement dining room of Ryves Youth Center to help ensure both the safety of the youth clients and their families, but also to help maintain the use, function, and appearance of the flooring. This type of flooring is used in heavily-trafficked retail outlets and facilities such as Holy Family Shelter in Indianapolis. This flooring system has been proven to hold up over time and to reduce the long-term maintenance cost and program downtime. This reduced program downtime allows us to provide uninterrupted services such as evening meals for the youth participating in our Ryves Youth Center programs.

Many thanks to both foundations for helping us create an inviting, safe, and better functioning dining room!
