ABSTRACT
The article reports that Holton Youth Center for the Riverwest and Harambee neighborhoods' youth, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, which has closed it doors in 2008 due to loss of financial support, is now reopened. The Center was a positive step in keeping kids off the streets and out of trouble and to provide them with positive influences. The reopened Center will receive a five-year, 1.05 million dollars grant from the Medical College of Wisconsin called a Violence Prevention Initiative.
