A non-profit group is planning to open a new youth center in Wexford county. However the organization has a lot of fundraising to do before the doors can open.


Never Down for the Count is a non-profit group working to transform an abandoned warehouse in Cadillac into a new community center for youth.

Officials said so far they have raised 2,600 dollars towards renovations. They said to complete the project it will cost about a half million dollars.

Dana Wilson is the executive director for the center, and native to the area. He said they have a lot of work to do before the facility opens.

“The goal is to be done by the next year. To be prepared to be opening for the 2017-18 school year.”

Wilson said he’s scheduled two fundraisers in October.
