Access seeks community help
By Joseph Slacian
 
For 30 years, The Access Youth Center has provided youth from around Wabash County with a safe place to spend time after school, in the evenings and on the weekend.
 
The faith-based center hosts a variety of programs to help fill the needs of youth and their families, including the after school meal and summer lunch programs, family nights, Bible study and more.
 
Officials there are now reaching out to the public to help them with a need of their own.
 
The Access, 74 W. Canal St., is in need of a major renovation. The price tag is more than $200,000, of which officials already have raised $85,000. They are working to raise additional funds, and hope the community will step up and help.
