In 2017, the Homeless Network of Yakima County partnered with Rod’s House, Yakima Neighborhood Health Services, Yakima’s Bethel AME and Englewood Christian Church to open a Young Adult Extreme Winter Weather Shelter to ensure young adults ages 18-24 have a safe, warm place to sleep this winter.
In 2019, after two successful years administering the shelter, the project was transferred from the Youth Coalition to Rod's House who is working on a year-round solution for youth and young adults. Strong partners from the inception of the project, Rod's House will help shepherd this project from a seasonal solution to the more permanent solution.
