The Mobile Recreation Unit was launched in February 2008 to address programming deficiencies identified by the Mayor's Council on Children and Youth. Accessibility, both in terms of location and cost, was identified as a major obstacle facing families looking for safe, quality after-school programming for their children. The Mobile Recreation Unit is intended to help alleviate the accessibility issue and provide safe, supervised activities near to home.  This Institution is an Equal Opportunity Provider.
