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've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My everyday life. I learned so much from the people I spent so much of my time with. And just as importantly in my happiness when I was in high school going to the Depot.

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 kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
