Our free recreational programs and resources offer youth a constructive place to experience positive peer interaction while having fun and trying out new activities.
Our daily programming is the cornerstone of our efforts at the FORT. Every day, we have youth come in and participant in free, loosely structured programming, or simply hang out with friends in a great space. Both the After School and Teens program are drop-in based- meaning participants can come and go any time during operating hours, and come as much or little as they would like during the week. All activities and programs are completely free!

The FORT understands that today’s youth face many different challenges as they grow. Stress, peer pressure, and difficulties at home or at school can take a heavy toll on a teenager. While the FORT provides a safe, comforting place to help teens deal with their problems, sometimes professional help is needed, and the FORT is there to provide it.
The FORT is able to offer any youth who may need it access to a professional psychologist or social worker at no cost to the youth. The FORT is dedicated to ensuring youth get the help they need when they need it. We are able to provide teens with care and attention in as little as a few days, and ensure they are connected with a trained professional who can help guide them. As with all programs at the FORT, this service is provided free of charge!
