Youth Resources

It’s important youth have a stable, supportive environment where they can learn and grow. That is why Neighborhood Health provides support for at risk youth.

The Space LGBTQ Youth Center

The Space is a special gathering place for Yakima-area Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer, Questioning, and allied youth between the ages of 13 and 23. Here, youth can feel safe and connect with peers and resources.

At The Space, youth can do homework, have a snack, check email, play games, enjoy the craft room, and participate in scheduled activities. Behavioral Health appointments can also be made. The Space is staffed by Neighborhood Health staff and trained volunteers.

We are open Mon-Sat but please call ahead for hours. 509-574-4216

On the Anita Monoian Campus, 12 S. 8th Street.

Want to volunteer at The Space? Call (509) 454-4143 and ask for Human Resources.
