The Depot is a wonderful place for the youth of our community to get together with friends, attend events and do community service for the town. The Kiwanis Club of Darien has worked with the youth of The Depot for the past several years in community service projects. The youth have been very helpful to us and we have helped support their projects. Working with the students and the staff at the Depot has been very rewarding. Keep up the good work for our local youth!

both my children have attended the Depot thru their teen years and always feel that they can go there and have their "own space". Janice is amazing and caring and does a wonderful job with the kids. My son went there and my daughter helps out there alot and has had many memorable experiences. I am so glad she has a place to go that is safe and comfortable for her.

The Depot provides a safe place for town teens to informally hang out and a venue for scheduled events such as dinners, team events, car washes, band nights, dances and more. More importantly, it encourages community service opportunities for teens to see how they can make a difference in the world. It also gives the kids a point of contact with adults other than their parents when they need someone to talk to who believes in them.

I am currently a Senior at the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan. But most of my fondest memories of high school are of my friends and I spending time at the Depot. The Depot helped nurture my love for design and gave me and my friends a place to go when no one wanted to go to their own home or go to a diner where you have to spend money. The Depot became our home, and I will always remember it that way.

I wish that there was a "Depot" when i was in High School. What a great place to be to hang with friends, contribute to fundraising, learn about yourself etc. It is a place for teens to go and feel like its a place of their own. that is very important in the world today, so many teens feel like they do not have a place of their own. The Depot is a wonderful place. I wish that i could give more money and time to the Depot, i really believe in this place!

the depot is a wonderful place. its offers many uses for teens in town. while attending darien high school up until last year i made many multiple visits to the depot. the depot has helped me become the good person i am today. not only does it provide a place for teens to hang out at a alcohol and drug free environment, its offered many students trips to rehabilitation centers to help us understand the dangers and reason not to result in drug usage. Janice is an amazing person and without her the depot would not be the same. the depot deserves all the help they can get

The Depot is a great place for our community. We have used The Depot for so much as a family. It is a great asset to our community and could be even more efective if Janice had more available to her. The Depot fill a great need in our town.

I went to the Depot all the time when I was in high school in Darien. Weather I was performing there, attending someone else's performance, or just partying with the theater group, the Depot was always there for us.
