New youth shelter close to opening

It appears that the new youth shelter called the door will be opening in February.

Earlier this month, they held an open house for the shelter, when they received the keys to the new building.

This past weekend, furniture was delivered to the house on tenth avenue.

The Fairbanks Youth Advocates, which runs the center, got help from Community Covenant Church to get the new furnishings there.

Fairbanks Youth Advocates has been operating a temporary overnight shelter at First Presbyterian Church since last December.
