Langley Youth Hub drops into place

Crane could be seen lifting modular buildings

The long awaited Langley youth homeless shelter has been dropped into place.

A crane could be seen lowering the modular buildings into place at 20285 62 Ave.

A tweet from the @Langleyyouthhub account said now that the building is in place, people are working hard to get the Langley Youth Resource Centre up and running as quickly as possible.

Shelter Modular, located in Aldergrove, put the modular building in place this week.

The new facility will have five beds for emergency sheltering of youth from this community. Currently, youth in crisis have to go to Surrey or Abbotsford if they need shelter.

The centre will expand on services currently provided two days a week by the Langley Youth Hub.
