Nelson’s Cicada Place held a special Christmas dinner on Wednesday night for the 12 youth who live at the Lake Street building.

Youth support worker Christine Vanlerberg (right) and coordinator of youth services and housing Joyce Dahms-Whiffen (left) prepared the meal in the afternoon for the evening celebration. Operated by the Nelson Community Services Program, Cicada Place provides supported housing units for youth between the ages of 16 and 22. It is considered transitional housing in order to support youth to prepare for full independence.
