Lakefield Youth Unlimited (LYU) has purchased the Tribal Voices building, which is directly off the bridge in Lakefield. This was made possible due to an anonymous lender who provided a no interest, no payments loan for as long as they own the building. They move into their new facility in mid-September.
LYU has been part of the Lakefield community for 15 years, working together with local residents, businesses, churches, schools, and government for the youth of our community. Through various programs and events, their vision “is to see the lives of youth in Lakefield attain their full life potential as God designed it.”
LYU envisions many possibilities as to how their new building will be used. Some ideas that could happen in the space include shared meeting rooms, life skill programs for youth, Jr. and Sr. High programs, gathering spaces for families and after-school programming.
Most of the funds were provided for the purchase of their new home but they still need to raise $20,000 by August 14th to pay off the remainder of short-term loans, plus an additional $55,000 by October 1st to begin their renovations in the fall.
