The Post raising money to build calming space

Whitney Roach, director of development at The Post, stands outside the room they’ve started renovating into a calming space.

GOSHEN — The Post gives youths somewhere to go after school, but the staff hope to build an oasis to give them a quiet place to go once they’re there.

The after-school program in a former post office at 301 E. Lincoln Ave. is raising money to renovate one of its rooms into a calming spot, to give students ways to get away from stress and build coping skills. They hope to use it to add things like art, journaling and yoga to the basketball, weightlifting, cafe and study help that they already offer.
