EYFO Partners with Bellwether Housing

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 Rainer 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.

Capital Campaign "EYFO Building for the Future”

We are very excited about our next fundraising efforts in 2021 and look forward to your support.  

Our vision and passion is to increase the number of students we can accept into our program, changing lives one child at a time. To do so we have launched a capital campaign to raise funds for a building where we can expand our outreach programs and serve more of our community. The fundraising efforts in 2021 will be a key part of this effort. Please stay tuned for more information.
