Helping the Inland Northwest's Most Vulnerable Since 1896

Crosswalk Youth Shelter

Chances for a Brighter Future

Established in 1985 and operating continuously since then, Crosswalk is the only licensed emergency shelter serving runaway and homeless youth in Eastern Washington. An array of professional case managers, teachers, health care workers, and chemical dependency counselors work with Crosswalk youth with the primary goal of ending their homelessness and connecting them to stabilizing and supportive services.
