Northeast Youth and Family Services (NEYFS) is “committed to empowering two generations by providing access and support to children and their families in North East Spokane.” NEYFS approaches their work through a racial equity lens for and by the community. Families gain skills essential to raising healthy children while maintaining their own physical, mental, and social health. All receive appropriate assistance to access various programs, strengthening their ability to thrive and connect with their community.
NEYFS hosts the Parkview Enrichment Program which serves youth, ages 5-13. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, what started as a summer and out-of-school program is now a full-time care and virtual learning program. The Parkview Enrichment Program offers a full curriculum that is growing to include more STEM, arts, and physical health components.
NEFYS exemplifies how organizations are quickly adapting their programs for the benefit of the community during this crisis.
