Extreme Team renovations revealed to Daybreak’s teen residents
SPOKANE, Wash. — It took hundreds of volunteers to renovate Spokane’s Daybreak Youth Services’ 30,000 square foot rehab center for girls this week, the Extreme Team’s biggest project to date.
The team did everything from replacing flooring and painting to bringing in new furniture and flat screen TVs as well as new bedrooms for the teens as they focus on their road to recovery.
While the first reveal happened Thursday night, the real reveal happened Friday when the girls staying in the facility saw the work that had been done, the screams and cheers echoing through the freshly painted hallways.
For the girls it was more than new bedding and paint; the makeover has created a home away from home.
Daybreak Spokane recently made the switch to accepting only teen girls for in-patient treatment after seeing a growing need for females statewide. The west wing of the building used to house boys and girls staying on that side of the building say the renovations the Extreme Team did make a big difference.
“When I first got here I didn’t want to be here because of how dirty it looked and everything, now there is going to be some changes around here,” Cillastina Edge said.
