CONSTRUCTING A GATEWAY TO NATURE

Power To Be‘s Prospect Lake site has become a source of healing, infinite discovery, and unconditional belonging; we had found a sense of place, and with that, a home. In the coming months, we will be constructing a gateway to nature, a series of innovative, sustainable, inclusive buildings that will allow us to enhance our programs and elevate our impact.

BUILDING DETAILS

Every person deserves to feel a sense of belonging at our Prospect Lake site, no matter their abilities, mobility, gender identity, age, race or socio-economic background.

“Power To Be matters because it gives people the chance to be out in nature and explore their local surroundings, it also gives people a community to be part of and in times like these, that might be the most important thing.”
