Delores Barr Weaver Policy Center opens
The Delores Barr Weaver Policy Center, designed as a national model to help at-risk girls, officially opened Thursday.
The nonprofit center was established in late 2012 with funding support from Weaver, a long-time advocate for girls and young women. Since then, staff has been hired and an office set up on Park Street, among other things.
The center will conduct research, develop programs, provide training for people who work with at-risk girls and advocate for supportive policies and practices.
