MARTIN COUNTY -

The new school at Samaritan Center for Young Boys & Families is now open.

Books, computers, supplies and everything else needed to make the Seymour St. John Learning and Activity Center the center of education, meetings and events has been moved.

'What was once a dream is now a reality,' said Amy Christensen, community development director. 'The classroom, tutoring areas, activity room and new library have exceeded all expectation.'

The new facility will allow Samaritan Center to better address the academic and behavioral issues of more boys and expand on the educational opportunities and academic methodology.

The Seymour St. John Center will also provide on- campus counseling for families, space for community outreach programs and a conference room for meetings, seminars and events.

Naming opportunities are available, as are commemorative bricks in the 'Walkway to the Future.'

A Christian-based, residential, early intervention program, Samaritan Center addresses the behavioral and academic issues of young boys at risk. Providing love, education and discipline to young boys and their families, Samaritan Center keeps families together and boys out of the juvenile court system to become contributors to the community.

Counseling and parenting classes are provided to the families to address the home environment as part of the restorative and preventative program.

For more information, visit www.thesamaritancenter.org or call (772) 287-4123, Ext. 203.
