The Henderson Harbor Triathlon is hosted by the Children’s Home of Jefferson County and Credo Community Center, two long-time, Northern New York non-profit agencies.
The SoZo Teen Center, one of CHJC’s Community Based Programs, is an adult supervised drop-in located in the Marcy Building, just off Public Square at 167 Polk Street, Watertown. It provides local teens a place to safely engage with their peers while enjoying activities like pool, video games, computer access, and movie nights. Youths also have the opportunity to receive help with homework, tutoring, and job skills training. More than 400 teens are registered at the Center with nearly 40 teens attending every day. In all Center programs, the staff stresses character building, leadership, and life skills. The SoZo Teen Center is open Monday through Thursday from 2:30 to 8:30 pm and till 9:00 pm on Fridays.
Credo Community Center has been in the business of providing services and treatment for over 30 years to individuals, groups, families, adults, adolescents and children, who lives have been negatively impacted by substance abuse. The agency has grown and developed to meet the changing needs of the clients, the community and the society. Program and site development have happened in many ways and in many directions.
