Thanks to a $1.1 million grant in Vision funds from the Rapid City Council, Wellfully will be able to build a new facility to house its Life Above and Beyond program to help at-risk teens. The Rapid City Journal reported that the new building will be a free place teens can come to learn work or life skills that could be used to give themselves a better life or to escape from troubles at home as well as help with addiction. The Premier Adolescent Care Center is planned for construction to begin sometime next year and will be located near the Roosevelt Park Ice Arena and Swim Center.
