We're back! Nexus Youth and Families Auburn Reopens
Updated: Feb 15, 2019
Despite its best efforts, the snow can no longer keep Nexus Youth and Families staff from doing what they love - helping young people in need.
After an early closure last Friday and a two-day closure earlier this week, Nexus Youth and Families Auburn has officially reopened to serve the community. Emergency shelter services remained open over the long weekend, with staff commuting in from across King and Pierce county to provide support to youth experiencing homelessness. Now, as the snow is just beginning to melt away, we're back to business as usual at our main office. Enumclaw and Maple Valley locations remain closed today, but should resume normal operation this week.
So what's on the agenda for the rest of the month? While some additional snow is anticipated in the weeks to come, that's not going to stop our Street Outreach team from their monthly check-in at the Renton Library. The first Wednesday of every month our Street Outreach team sets up at the Renton Library to distribute supplies and information to youth in need. Come say hello if you're in the area! You can learn a bit more about our outreach work here.
Towards the end of the month we also have the New Horizons YCRE event, which is a great opportunity for youth in need to connect with resources such as free meals, service providers, legal support, and more! You can RSVP for that event here or learn more about the services provided by New Horizons here. Our Street Outreach staff will be there, along with other support staff so we hope to see you there!
We are also looking for more volunteers for Sprint/Summer work projects here at Nexus Youth and Families. All support is appreciated, and we have opportunities for people of all abilities and skill sets. If you or someone you know is interested in coming to volunteer with us, please fill out our Volunteer Sign-Up here.
Thanks for being patient with us over the last week while we endured the #Snowpocalypse, and stay tuned for more updates coming soon!
