Founded by, and Ceo of, My Place is Venerable Pannavati. She started Generation "Y" to serve 18-24 year-olds with housing and living skills.
The following is their mission statement taken from their website:
“My Place” is a non-profit, transitional housing program for “unaccompanied” and homeless youth in Hendersonville, NC between the ages of 18 and 24. The comprehensive program incorporates counseling and support services, leadership development and parenting skills training, job/college readiness and placement support, and family re-integration where appropriate.
Today I talked with Anthony Peterkin, in Bubulini's Grill. From the food I saw it looked really good. Anthony graduated from High School in June and now attends AB Tech for Culinary Arts. Open Monday through Saturday from 11:00 to 4:00, they serve burgers and other sandwiches as well as shakes and soft drinks, all at competitive prices. You can learn more about Anthony, Bubulini's and their menu here.
Another project though My Place is the Growing Healthy Together Community Garden, which you can read about from BlueRidgeNow.com link.
They have shelter for Boys and Girls, My Place 1 and My Place 2. They have a teen talk radio show called Voices, and a thrift shop at 210 Church Street.
The thrift shop has household items as well as clothes. Proceeds go to supporting My Place and Generation "Y".
This is a fantastic opportunity for young adults to learn life skills and make a positive change in their lives. My Place can always use funds if you want to consider assisting them and this is the perfect time of the year to make a tax deductible donation to continue the success of this program. My Place is funded by donations.
