Amarillo, Texas - One of Amarillo's afterschool programs for underprivileged youth will soon close their doors.

A lack of funding and the prolonged down economy are the reason the S.O.S. or "Students Off the Streets" program through Catholic Family Services is shutting down.

For over fifteen years, the S.O.S. has given kids an alternative to gangs and drugs through programs like tutoring, field trips, basketball, and boxing.
