Outstanding organization that is positioned on the west side of Alameda within easy access of apartments and the City Housing units. The facility is 26,000 SQFT and serves nearly 180 kids a day. The organization provides a wide variety of programs including education, technology, arts, fitness, nutrition, dental services, teen programs and a fully equipped games room. The staff are fantastic and the organization has served the Island youth since 1949. When I invest I like to see a return on my investment. It is easy to see how this organization is making an impact on youth.
