For the last five months, the CanTeen has been homeless. For a teen center whose mission was to provide a safe place for teens to go, it’s been rough, to say the least. But on March 14, the doors finally opened to the center’s new home — a spacious split-level with a media room, a full kitchen, a wide-open rec room, his and hers bathrooms, a conference room, office space and more. “We actually feel like we’re in a home now,” said participant Ashley Bubb. “It feels like home,” echoed Melissa Mizzoli. “It’s ours. It’s comfortable.”
