YFT CLOSED: 02.12.10

Staff has made the decision to close YFT tonight due to pending inclement weather and dangerously low temperatures.
As you know, many youth drive from the surrounding areas and/or use TRE and DART to make it to group. For these reasons, we are protecting the safety of ALL youth who travel across north Texas for programming, and we are closing our doors for the night.
We will resume center hours and activities on Friday at 4pm on 02/12/2010.
Have a safe and warm evening!
