NaperBridge and Alive Merge

The teen focused facility plans on merging with the newly formed alive center, which works to better people’s lives through connecting them to the community.

“One of the really cool things about ALIVE is that our missions align so well, they really complement each other in the fact that we’re looking at helping people belong and be accepted, empowering people. NaperBridge focused on teens but Alive focuses on everyone so it really matches up well when you think about it in that regard,” said Teen Co-Founder of NaperBridge Austin Hansen.

The not for profits will call 500 West 5th Avenue home, in a brand new 5,000 square foot facility, fulfilling all of their needs.

“The concept is really to help people connect with their most alive selves. We will have teen programs for the teens, after school from 3 to 6, and get a chance to hang out, belong and connect and during the day for adults. We will have music therapy, art therapy, cooking classes nutrition classes. You name it, anything that really helps people connect with their passions and who they are,” said Executive Director of Alive, Kandice Henning.

The Alive Center will open in April.
