Klamath Falls Gets Another Shelter For Homeless Youth


Youth Rising in Klamath Falls has always been about supporting young people in the community with a variety of needs.  And now it plans to address the issue of youth homelessness. 

YR envisions an expansion of its services, including the creation of emergency shelter facilities for young people.  And it's already beyond vision, with YR buying the old Gospel Mission in Klamath Falls.  YR Executive Director (and founder) Tasha Meyer joins us with details, accompanied by YR Development Coordinator Hallie Winchell.
