The Vault Reopens to Youth

Phase 3 of Gov. JB Pritzker's 'Restore Illinois' plan allows for a Clinton teen center to reopen on a limited basis.


Executive Director of The Vault in Clinton, Tammy Wilson told Regional Radio News on the WHOW Morning Show Wednesday they are allowing youth in but activities are limited. She says mentors have returned to the facility. Youth are encouraged to wear masks but not required.



According to Wilson, the youth she has been able to talk to and interact with have taken the shutdown of the coronavirus in stride and are very happy to be back at The Vault and interacting with their friends.



Concern for youth over the shutdown and their mental wellbeing have been expressed by healthcare professionals in the last few months but Wilson indicates she hasn't seen that impact yet from the kids she has been able to talk to.



Wilson adds their Grub-N-Go lunch program has gotten off to a great start, selling out of food several times in the first week-and-a-half. She thanks the community for their support of the program and they look forward to a successful summer.
