Lake Andes , SD
Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2003, $288,115)
Charles Mix County plans to use this award to fund four separate programs already present in the county: the Boys and Girls Club of the Yankton Sioux; the Lake Andes Youth Center; the Lake Andes After School Program; and Lewis and Clark Behavioral Services. The first three programs provide prosocial alternatives for youth during the critical after-school hours, when children might otherwise lack appropriate adult supervision. These programs will also operate on a full-day basis during school holidays and in the summer. Lewis and Clark Behavioral Services will use grant funds to open a satellite office in Lake Andes. This office will provide substance abuse evaluations, referral services, and counseling.
