Blankets Donated To Chautauqua Opportunities
Early in December, Chautauqua Opportunities, Inc.’s Safe House in Jamestown received a warm donation from Shults Nissan Subaru of Jamestown. Ashley Kubis, site supervisor, received 80 blankets that will be given to youth staying at the Safe House or the Transitional Independent Living Program apartments. The safe house is a 12-bed runaway and homeless youth shelter that is licensed by the state Office of Children and Family Services. Homeless youth under the age of 18 may stay up to 21 days while staff work to reunite the family or find other appropriate living arrangements. Youth between the ages of 16 and 21 who are homeless can stay in the TILP apartments and learn independent living skills while working or going to school.
