Incredible! High School Starts Safe Haven on Fridays to Keep Kids Safe

A high school hallway - packed with kids, at 9pm on a Friday night. It's unusual - but it's a high school in Newark, New Jersey trying to keep kids safe - and West Side High has become a safe haven, free of fear.

Within the walls, they can laugh. It's called the "Lights On Program." It's open to every kid - Principal Cook, who started the program, is the same principal who, last summer, installed a free laundry room in the school for kids who were bullied because of dirty clothes. They even get hot meals served to them.

In the summer, when school isn't in session, they still do this 3 nights a week - all made possible by donations!

It's incredible how much can be done by people who care for kids, who just want a chance.
