[Page H6257] From the Congressional Record Online through the Government Publishing Office [www.gpo.gov] CENTRE COUNTY YOUTH SERVICE BUREAU (Mr. THOMPSON of Pennsylvania asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.) Mr. THOMPSON of Pennsylvania. Mr. Speaker, a few weeks ago, I was proud to announce grant funding for the Centre County Youth Services Bureau, an organization in my district which operates an emergency shelter, assisting youth, ages 12-17, who are homeless, runaways, or at risk for either of these conditions due to difficult circumstances at home. This grant funding allowed the shelter to continue to operate 24 hours a day, providing a safe haven for these young men and women. The shelter is just one of my initiatives that the Centre County Youth Services Bureau is responsible for. The organization, which was founded in 1968, also is involved in a variety of community-based, family-based, and residential programs intended to improve the lives of families across Centre County and the surrounding area. Mr. Speaker, I commend the Youth Services Bureau and all the staff in taking the initiative to apply for this grant funding, and I know that they are going to be able to see the results of this award for years to come. ____________________
