Adelphoi, a community-based organization providing therapeutic treatment and behavioral health services to at-risk youth and families, held a Showcase of Stars and Groundbreaking event on May 17 at its main campus in Latrobe, PA. Attended by Adelphoi staff, board, donors and supporters, the event served two purposes: celebrating the talent, creativity and achievement of its student stars and breaking ground on a new Youth and Family Center and Welcome Center.
The Showcase of Stars event featured youth from Adelphoi’s programs, which include group homes, foster care and adoption, educational services and mental health programs, to serve as “stars” for the evening, as they demonstrated their skills and accomplishments as part of Adephoi’s Career Readiness Program.
