SAVE THE DATE! Please join us for the dedication of the Teen Center, aka "The Hub on 3rd." August 4, 2017 at 2:00 pm at the Hub, 534 S. 3rd Ave. in Walla Walla.
Thanks to the hundreds of our neighbors and the generosity of local, regional and state funders, we have raised over $2.2 million to completely build and begin furnishing this amazing place.
We seek to “finish the furnishing” and make this house a home with furniture, games, linens, art supplies, lab equipment and more. Click here for a complete list of furnishings and the costs anticipated to procure them.

About this project:
Every day there are Walla Walla Valley teens who “couch surf” or sleep outdoors because they are homeless. Youth who find themselves in unfortunate circumstances need help with temporary shelter and services that can help and encourage them to stay in school and develop skills for successful, independent living.
The Walla Walla Youth Alliance has identified homeless youth its top priority. Walla Walla direly needs a youth shelter that also provides other services so youth may reach their social, emotional and intellectual potential. The WALLA WALLA TEEN CENTER will offer counseling, free medical assistance, childcare, employment skill building/placement, recreation, and a supervised overnight shelter for homeless youth.
Blue Mountain Action Council (BMAC) will own the center and provide employment/training services. Catholic Charities will operate an overnight emergency shelter and coordinate homeless prevention services. The Health Center will provide primary and mental health care services. Children's Home Society of Washington will provide Early Head Start child care for parenting teens.
