POTEAU—The LeFlore County Youth Services will hold a groundbreaking for the new LeFlore County Youth Services Emergency Youth Shelter and offices Friday at 10 a.m.
The event will take place at the building site at 510 N. Broadway in Poteau.
Since 1974 LeFlore County Youth Services has served the needs of the youth and families of LeFlore and Haskell Counties.
What began as an emergency youth shelter (Reed House) has expanded into an agency which touches the lives of hundreds of youth and families each year. LCYS continually works to fulfill its mission of providing opportunities for healthy development to the youth and families of LeFlore and Haskell Counties.
The Reed House served LCYS well, but the organization is in need of a new shelter.
