Downtown Browne’s is celebrating five successful years of helping youth in Regina this week.
The center was set up to be a safe haven for youth living on the streets or in unsafe living conditions.
The program’s successes can be attributed to many things.
But, Dustin Browne Executive Director of the Street Culture Project says one reason they have been able to relate to youth so well is the fact some of their current employees are former guests of the center.
Browne said they’ve seen over a thousand youth come through the center since opening their doors in Regina five years ago.
