Kenneth Young Center
Helping people feel good, do better, and find solutions

Use your GARDENING and PLANT skills to keep our Healing Gardens growing!

Kenneth Young Center is a safety net for our neighbors in need. Part of our healing process is providing clients with an inviting and nurturing environment. We have many plants in our building-space, and we have a beautiful space outside to experience the beauty of nature--our Healing Garden.

A wonderful quote by Tennessee Williams says it all: "Where flowers bloom so does Hope."

Won't you help us plant the seeds of hope for your neighbors? You'll be so glad you did.
