Mark Anderson, a Fremont, New Hampshire resident from Belfast, Northern Ireland, has dreamed of opening a community center for years. In December of 2016 his plan became a reality after his 17-year-old-son, Austin, died in a car crash on December 3, 2016.
After this tragic loss, Austin17House became a reality organically. The community center was able to be funded with the $11,000 raised by 170 people on a GoFundMe page posted online.
Austin17House is a non-profit organization with the goal to create a place where youth and adults - from anywhere - can strengthen their identity and develop leadership skills.
