KENNEWICK, Wash.—The Leadership Tri-Cities class unveiled their year-long project at My Friends' Place.  It is the only homeless shelter for teens in the area.

The group made improvements to the front of the building including the addition of benches and art.  They also reorganized shelving and remodeled storage rooms.

"We've donated hundreds of hours and raised $12,000 to make improvements to the outside of the building," says Kate Holloway, Leadership Tri-Cities.

My Friends' Place is an overnight shelter for teens ages 13 to 17.  It's located on North Grant Place in Kennewick.
