Originally from Tyrone, Ga., Jennifer Widincamp got her Bachelors Degree in Finance from Georgia State University and her Bachelors in Accounting from Auburn University.
In regards to her new board position, Widincamp said, “I love helping kids and seeing a smile when they know someone cares about them. I’m very excited to work with the Park Place Outreach team and see how I can do my small part to help the big problem of child homelessness.”
All services at Park Place Outreach are provided free, including a safe, secure place to stay along with meals and transportation to and from school. The staff also offers family counseling with follow-up visits after a resident returns home, as well as non-resident services including an after-school tutorial and drop-in center, recreational services and after-care services.
Since opening in 1984, over 6200 at-risk youth have been served by the organization.
Park Place Outreach Youth Emergency Shelter, located at 514 E. Henry St., provides support for troubled children and teens in Savannah and the surrounding area. The shelter is open 24 hours a day, and offers youth, between the ages of 11 and 17, a safe and loving environment. Homeless, abused or runaway teenagers can self-admit themselves into this shelter.
The Street Outreach Program team offers mentoring to resident adolescents and provides counseling, clothing and personal care items to teens and young adults up to age 21 that are in need and might not come in to the shelter.
Whenever possible, the organization’s goal is to keep kids off the street and reunify families. Park Place Outreach – Youth Emergency Shelter is an equal opportunity provider and employer.
With the generous support of local organizations and individuals, the Park Place Outreach Shelter has helped over 6,000 individuals.
