Thanks to the New Markets Tax Program our YMCA was able to build a community facility in Spokane, WA. The facility is located in one of the poorest zip codes in the state of Washington. This facility has greatly improved the local area by providing valuable services including but not limited to child care, domestic violence survivor support, health and wellness programs, and youth sports programs. Since it’s opening local businesses surrounding the facility have invested in their own facilities to greatly enhance the entire area.
