Sisu Youth Inc. opens office

Sisu Youth Inc. began five years ago as a personal quest for founders Penny Reynolds and Amber Richardson to identify and gather youth-focused trauma and crisis services in the Oklahoma City metro area into one centralized location.

In June, the nonprofit opened an office at 1225 Sovereign Row, Suite 105, off Meridian and Interstate 40. Sisu offers 15- to 24-year-olds a safe place to visit. Running on volunteer work and donations, the center is open only on Thursdays.

On Tuesday, S&B’s Burger Joint’s Midtown location will donate 10 percent of the day’s sales to Sisu Youth.
