EVERETT, Wash. (AP) — A new nonprofit youth services and housing building is set to open in Washington.

The Daily Herald reports Cocoon House's new three-level space in Everett will soon house 20 at-risk teens and 20 young adults.

The new location will consolidate the nonprofit's services and administration into one center.

Cocoon House CEO Joe Alonzo says the organization plans to sell two of its buildings in Everett.

Last week at the new space, Cocoon House staff and 30 Premera Blue Cross volunteers feverishly assembled furniture on the third floor, which will soon house at-risk 18- to 24-year-olds.

The organization previously served those under 18, but is expanding with the new building.

Cocoon House will host an open house Thursday at the new space before beginning operations Friday.
