LUCY Outreach Has New State-of-the-Art Facilities Making it Possible to Efficiently Serve More Youth

Recently expanded LUCY Outreach, or Lifting Up Camden’s Youth, is celebrating a grand reopening, and its founder says she looks forward to more than doubling the number of at-risk and low-income youth and young adults they serve each year.

Now, in addition to their three-story house on Federal Street, the program’s expanded space offers new state-of-the-art, energy-efficient computer labs, performance spaces, a commercial kitchen, a roof deck and more.

LUCY started in 1985 as a small Catholic youth ministry that met in a parking lot and served just a few children. After expansive growth, a new name and some restructuring, the program serves about 500 youth each year, says Executive Director Kristin Prinn.
