Gillis Center is a healing place for at-risk children and families, providing education, counseling, social service, residence and emergency shelter. The children who live there, the boys and girls who attend their school-based day treatment, and the troubled families who go to heal; all have a story. Some stories are horrific and traumatic, some sad, some infuriating but almost all of them have the same ending: Hurting people made whole again at Gillis.
Age Requirement: This event is good for adults and teens. No small children please.
Dress: Appropriate modest attire is required, specifically modest clothing (no short shorts, or yoga/tight pants, no low cut or halter tops). Please think of the young men we will be with.
