Mural

 Our Youth Outreach members: Communities that Care (CTC) created and painted a mural with the guidance of artists Jason Braun. All that were involved worked numerous hours to accomplish this beautiful peace of art, that just by looking at it inspires unity and acceptance. Our HOPE is that from this mural many more can be created around Hazleton, so that everytime "Hazletonians" take a look at one they feel unified and not alone. Thank you CTC members, and Thank you Jason Braun!
