There’s a new center in Downtown Sacramento for homeless youth and young people in danger of becoming homeless. Wind Youth Services said its center at the corner of 8th and S streets is twice the size of the old facility in Oak Park. “We’ve got showers, we’ve got hot meals, respite, which is place to rest and recharge your body, laundry, art therapy, employment capability, financial workshops, case management, all kinds of things that young people need to move forward in their lives,” said Suzi Dotson, executive director of the center. The center will be open 7 a.m to 7 p.m. to anyone between the ages of 12 and 24 who requires help. There will also be a 24-hour emergency phone line.
