SAFY Summer Youth Programs
SAFY Behavioral Health has summer youth programming running until school starts. Youth are engaged in a number of pro-social programs and activities during the summer months including things like yoga, gardening, game nights, creative expression through art, scavenger hunts, and support groups for emotional health. There have been over 50 youth who are involved in these activities. One of the big projects for the youth has been “Cleaning up Lima.” The kids have picked up over 200 pounds of litter to help clean up the city.
