Community Funded - Community Run

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.  

New Adminstrators

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.   To learn more about how you can continue to partner with this solution - go to  https://rodshouse.org/ to learn more.
