EVERYDAY PEOPLE: Making Moore of an impact on area youths


For youths who loiter around The Shop in downtown Brainerd, there is one thing that is an everyday constant at the after-school center — Cindy Moore will be waiting for them.

Operating The Shop is not Moore’s job, but it is her passion.

“I’ve always had a passion for hormonally-challenged youth,” she said. “I love teenagers.”

Moore’s “paid” job is with Lutheran Social Services as a youth empowerment specialist.
