Driver OK, but not youth group's van in Alton crash
David Lynch, director of the Wolfeboro-based Appalachian Mountain Teen Project, which serves at-risk youth throughout the region, said the group's board and members are scrambling to find a replacement vehicle for the 20 or so excursions planned with about 47 teens this summer.
He is uncertain how much AMTP's insurance company will cover. The van was in good shape, but is nearly 10 years old.
"Our program was already hurting financially after the state cut funding for prevention and diversion programs in 2011," Lynch said. "We've been running pretty much on grants from foundations and donation, and some towns, and the school district, also help us out, but we're really, really struggling to keep our head above water and provide the great level of service," he said.
