In December 2015 when the fire occurred at the Youth Hostel on the George Price Highway, there was a transition phase ongoing where the young girls would have been moved into a new concrete structure. There was also a revamping of the educational programs for the young persons living there but the three young ladies who perished in the fire were caught up at the tail end of an old system. CEO Judith Alpuche spoke to the media on the changes and improvements coming forth since the incident.
CEO Alpuche says that the improvements also entail educational programs as well as initiatives to address behavioural issues. As it relates to mental health of the young persons, they are collaborating with the Ministry of Health.
