  • About Third Way Center

    About Third Way Center: Third Way Center serves over 200 teens annually, ages 15-19. By offering a path toward healing and wholeness through mental health treatment, quality education, and intensive life skills training in a home-like, safe environment, the youth who live in our residential treatment programs prepare for independence each day. They work hard to graduate from high school, to get a job, to learn practical life skills like cooking and cleaning, and to come to terms with their troubled pasts. Their time at Third Way is short and they spend it racing toward a life of successful independence. Now, you can Race 4 Independence right alongside them. Vist www.thirdwaycenter.org for more information about the organization.

    Participant Goodies:

    Picnic Blankets and Tote Bags for each registered participant.
