The Fire House is a youth center that gives teens a place to go. It opened its doors in October 2010 for high school students and recently opened Thursday mornings for middle school students. The Fire House is on St. Luke’s of the Mountains property and has partnered with Crescenta Valley Drug and Alcohol Prevention Coalition and Prom Plus.
Members of the Lion’s Club attended the center’s Grand Opening and asked what they could do to support The Fire House. After meeting with it’s teen members the Lion’s Club generously donated an Xbox video game. There is always food at The Fire House and volunteers have been covering the costs. Lions Club stepped in with a $500 donation of grocery store cards.
