Next Level Trainings leadership team to renovate transitional housing for homeless teens through Huckleberry House
COLUMBUS, OH – Teens all across central Ohio go to Huckleberry House, if they are in need of shelter and other resources are received and treated with unconditional kindness and respect. The 19th class of Next Level Trainings is supporting Huckleberry House with two Facility Improvement Days.

The team will be updating window coverings, cabinetry, appliances, cleaning and installing new furnishings into a space dedicated to young adults, and their children, in the transitional living program.
