"City" piece on the Beacon Teen Center. The Youth and Family Outreach agency gave up operating Beacon on October 15, just ten months after taking control of the center. Preble Street Resource Center has taken over running the drop-in room, now known simply as the teen center. PSRC Director Mark Swann said the center will initially concentrate on offering weekday lunch and supper every night, and will ultimately have a seven-hour drop-in. The center is housed in the Chestnut Street Church, and benefits from classes and counseling provided by a clinic operated by Portland's Department of Public Health and the YWCA's Street Academy and Street Program.
