  • The Urban Peak roof was already old when it was hit with torrential rains.

The pounding rain this month, which proved disastrous statewide, has caused a mini-crisis for a small local youth shelter.

Urban Peak is place of last resort for many teens and young people, including those that have been kicked out of their homes because they're gay, lesbian or pregnant. But this place of second chances — which offers both programs and a shelter — is having a tough time itself.

Hard rain broke through the roof in the shelter's program area earlier this month, and executive director Shawna Kemppainen has been struggling to raise about $15,000 to replace it. She has about $7,000 so far — enough for an emergency repair, but not enough to fix the problem long-term.
