TRANSPORTATION TO AND FROM SCHOOL

Many parents’ work days are longer than their kids’ school days. NEYC offers parents a seamless solution. Parents can drop off and pick up their children at NEYC, and we will get them to and from school. Our Vehicle Fleet is inspected daily and equipped with certified booster seats.

TESTIMONIALS

Read what parents are saying about NEYC.

I have been taking my kids to the NEYC for over 2 years now and never once questioned their safety or the integrity of the staff. They are amazing and treat my children with compassion and respect. Without a shade of doubt, I know that my children are being loved and cared for when I am not able to be with them. The staff go above and beyond and create an environment of making the community their family. I can’t thank them enough for helping me stay stress free during a very stressful time. I highly recommend them.

When times get tough who would you turn to?  I went straight to the Northeast Youth Center! I cannot think of any better place to have my grandson.  He is safe, happy, well feed & has made many new friends and truly enjoys being there.  They have been my saving grace since I got custody of him. They have been the Rock for us not only during this trying time of the pandemic but all the time! They are the BEST!!

“There is not enough words to describe what the NEYC has done for my kids. We would not be where we are today without the love and support from the NEYC. We are so thankful for all they have done over the past 9 years.”

“In an unforgettable time of uncertainty, we can always count on the Northeast Youth Center to provide a safe, fun, and adventurous opportunity for my daughter. They are the rock that keeps my daughter and I grounded, motivated and resilient. I cannot express the amount of thankfulness and gratitude that I have towards the staff and volunteers at the NEYC who help care for my daughter during all the ups and downs life brings. I am also  forever grateful for the wonderful opportunities that our daughter has experienced as a result of scholarships.”

ABOUT US

Spokane Northeast Youth Center has been making a difference in the lives of children since 1971. What started as a program within Spokane Parks and Recreation has now grown to become its own nonprofit organization with a dedicated board of directors. We are state licensed through the Department of Youth Services, providing social and emotional learning, childcare, meals and transportation to children in our community. All children deserve a place where they feel welcome and celebrated.
