Urban Barn recently redesigned our Male Crisis Program’s shared living space. We recently added more beds to our Male Crisis Program and the common area inside was close quarters for the youth. They provided us with brand new patio furniture to encourage the youth to get outside and enjoy the fresh air and extra space outside.

Thank you Nicole for providing our young people with this incredible Tower Garden!
