Blair County Teen Shelter

The New Teen Center/Shelter

After almost a year of working behind the scenes, we have acquired our building permits and are beginning renovations. In the next few months, sprinkler systems will be installed, a kitchen, handicapped accessible bedroom and bathroom will be created, 2 bathrooms upstairs will be updated, and the basement will become a game room and activity center.

Once opened, the center will offer counseling, drop in opportunities for meals, clothing, and just hanging out.

Our Partners Include:

  • Altoona Area School District
  • Altoona Police Department
  • Penn State Altoona
  • Blair County Drug and Alcohol Partners
  • Young Life and other faith based organizations

You Can Help

  • We need cash donations to continue renovations
  • We need willing workers to help finish projects such as painting, cleaning, and preparing for inspection
  • Skilled labor is needed to complete some mechanical and cosmetic work

Please help us make this dream a reality and provide a brighter future for the youth of Blair County. Follow our progress on Facebook. If you would like more information please send an email to
