Several supporters were on hand to back the Teen Center’s request for additional funding at last Tuesday’s Los Alamos County Council meeting.
One issue raised was the support center provided after Tyler Van Anne’s suicide.
“Since this suicide happened, people are really concerned. Parents are scared for their kids. And a lot of times those kids need other adults in the community, other places they can go besides their homes. And the teen center provides that space,” former director Michelangelo Lobato said.
