9:30 Adult Forum: Gabe Mayfield, the director of the Life House Youth Center will be our presenter. Gabe Mayfield has worked at Life House, the nonprofit organization serving at-risk homeless youths for more than three years. As the youth center program manager, he oversees grant reporting, administrative duties and supervision. While his main job is helping keep Life House safe, he said he relishes connecting with the youth. During lunch last week, young adults filtered in for help with basic needs: food, clothing, camaraderie. Mayfield glided through the downtown Duluth facility, towering but not domineering at 6 feet, 7 inches tall. He walked past a young man, giving him a low high-five. He sat down at the kitchen table with another. His voice was animated, his laugh boisterous and welcoming. (excerpts and photo taken from a 2018 article in the Duluth News Tribune.)
