Citizens for Change at TAFY
Clean up TAFY, or close the doors!
TAFY stands for "The Answer For Youth." It is quickly becoming a public nuisance. It's located in a residential area and within walking distance to a large playground frequented by children and families. TAFY has no limits on age. Its intention of helping less fortunate youth has become much like the Salvation Army; helping any person of any age. Vulnerable youth are being mixed with a much older crowd. It's become a "hot spot" for drug dealing. The crowds loitering outside of the building are loud and vulgar. They are seen passing items... which if they are followed to nearby areas (such as the nearby playground) they are seen using illegal drugs, then returning back to TAFY. The lack of rules and growing concern from Port Angeles residents trumps the very reason this organization is there. At this time, as a Port Angeles resident, I want TAFY to be closed to the public.
