Renovations coming to house for at-risk youth

In the four years of the program's existence, over 70 years have entered the transitional living program.

A transitional living program for at-risk youth is currently renovating their Huntsville home.

It'll take $45,000 to complete the upgrades. Safe Harbor Youth Incorporation takes in runaways, homeless youth or victims of human trafficking. The expansion of the house will allow them to house a total of 10 people. Executive Director Lynn Caffery told WAAY 31 this program hits home for her.

"I ended up going to prison because there wasn't a program for me. These kids have an opportunity to come into the program instead of going to prison because they stole food or because they're hungry," said Executive Director Lynn Caffery.

The Alabama Wheelmen Bike race this weekend will help raise money for the renovations.
