Youth Housing Support Program

We provide wrap around case management, support services, housing navigation and mental health counseling to meet the unique needs of the youth and young adults (12-24) experiencing housing instability in our rural valley.

If you are between ages 12-24, living in a car, couch surfing, in an unsafe living situation, about to be evicted, or just having a hard time with housing please get in touch!

You can call us and leave a confidential message (509) 997-2050 or can fill out the form below anytime.

Housing Navigation

We can make direct connections to rental assistance, completing applications for low-income housing, and provide access to other temporary shelters like motels or shelters out of the area. We can also guide you through the process of accessing local resources like online forums and making connections in your networks to find housing.

Complete our Housing Needs Form or call us to get connected to resources.

Host home people

Host Home Program

We facilitate matches between youth ages 12-24 in need of housing with volunteers who have free and private space in their homes to share. We do a thorough vetting and training process with our host volunteers to ensure safe matches are made between the host homes and the young people in our program. Find our more HERE.

Interested in becoming a volunteer host or learning more about the program? Contact Ronda Smeltzer or Kelly Edwards.
