EYFO Partners with Bellwether Housing

Capital Campaign "EYFO Building for the Future”

We are excited to announce that after serving South Seattle as renters for the past 20 years, we are now in the construction phase of a $6.6 million facility. EYFO at the Flourish marks the transition of EYFO from renters to owners and anchors us in a rapidly gentrifying neighborhood. An investment in our work ensures access to affordable and culturally relevant childcare, academic support, college and workforce readiness, and enrichment programs for some of Seattle's most vulnerable residents. 

We are $2 million away from fully funding this project. We need your help to close this gap. Will you help us make an impact on the lives of this community? Donate Now

EYFO Childcare Center - Opening Fall 2023

EYFO is thrilled with our continued partnership with Bellwether Housing on Flourish on Rainier, a 186-unit affordable housing development adjacent to the Rose Street Apartments on Rainier Avenue South in Seattle WA. EYFO is currently located in another Bellwether development (Rose Street l) also located on Rainier Avenue South.

Highlights of the development include an 8,000 square foot child care center operated by Empowering Youth and Families Outreach. This expansion will allow EYFO to serve a greater number of students (127) which will include preschool, toddlers and school age youth.

This development will include multi-bedroom floorplans for families, a community room, an outdoor courtyard and play area, along with commercial space.  The project is expected to be complete in 2023.
