Inspiration Point: GAP Services
PTI has been expanding over the past few years by adding more full time staff and consultants to support an ever-increasing number of individuals seeking our programming. Programming has also expanded through our Social College and Social Focus projects.
Now, PTI has taken another step toward meeting the goals of PTI participants through our brand new Inspiration Point, a project of PTI. This space, located directly across the hall from our current location, increases our footprint and gives PTI prime visibility to anyone entering the 200 South Hanley building in Clayton. Inspiration Point will fill existing service gaps and enhance our response to the needs of existing and potential participants while also supporting the greater community.
