"The Loft" is a program that helps teens through J Bar J Youth Services.

 

Pat Gundy with the Loft says a clerical error lead to the budget shortfall.

 

"We write  a grant for our transitional living program, which is The Loft.  The Department of Health and Human Services has funded the program in the past, but when we uploaded the application, something in the form got left out and we didn't get the money.  That's $200,000 dollars."

 

The Loft is home to 16 to 20 year old kids who need housing.  Last year , 27 kids were helped by the program.

 

Gundy says he's looking for short term funding to get them through the next year until they again expect to  receive federal funds.
