Hilltop's Robert A. Brown Center for Youth was awarded $2,000 from the Rocky Mountain District Kiwanis Foundation to support recreation and outdoor activities for the boys residing in the Brown Center. The money will help pay for youth sport fees, equipment for team sports, and camps for the youth. Rex Swanson, mayor of Montrose, presented the check to Hilltop employees on Aug. 9.

This request will benefit boys in Montrose who are creating new futures for themselves. The Robert A. Brown Center is a residential child care facility, serving adolescent boys ages 12 to 18 years old. Services are comprehensive, coordinated and individualized. The Brown Center program focuses on life skills the boys will use every day. Youth are given the opportunity to learn responsibility, and practice what that means in a safe environment. All youth participate in group activities including: current events, substance abuse, cooperative learning, life skills training and anger management. Youth are presently providing community service to the Montrose Animal Shelter and the Montrose Public Library.
