Junction staff and volunteers October 16, 1971

Junction staff and volunteers October 16, 1971

Hat Tip: Mark Yount.  The staff of Junction on approximately October 16, 1971…  According to Yount, “…  (Junction) opened it's doors for business in 1971, but there were many of us that helped fix it up when the county gave it to the non-profit organization in 1970. I remember being in there then at age 15 scraping and painting walls. Little did I know that I would be working there someday for nearly 25 years. Here is a picture from 1971 of many of the youth who helped make this project work.”

Junction is a local Westminster Carroll County Maryland private nonprofit agency for substance abuse prevention and outpatient drug treatment.  It provides prevention, intervention, and treatment of substance abuse for individuals, their families, and the community through education, counseling, community collaboration, and leadership in Carroll County.

It was incorporated on September 27, 1971.  A month after incorporation, on December 6, 1971, it opened its doors in the historic Carroll County Jail on Court Street in Westminster.

Disclosure: I’ve been a member of the board of Junction since October 2000.
