News from Spokane Youth
You can have the indepedence you wish, while building a network of friends, colleagues, and advocates.
Spokane Youth, a division of Disability Action Center, will be going through some changes in the next month. Currently, we assist youth and young adults (ages 14-24) with disabilities to find and connect with local resources to make a successful transition towards adulthood. As an organization run by people with disabilities for people with disabilities, they provide peer counseling, support and mentoring. The best advice often comes from those who have already experienced it.
We are poised to start expanding our services to everyone with a disbility, not just youth. Stay tuned for more information on our exciting growth. And remember we still host our other regular events, like Mental Health Mondays. These are held the last Monday of every month. A virtual get together that offers tips and peer to peer advice for living with anxiety and other mental health issues.
We also host a game night once a month to play virtual games together and have some fun. You can meet up with us the third Tuesday of every month and chat and have fun with other young people with disabilities.You can find all our events on the website https://dacnw.org/events/.
So keep an eye out for great changes to our services provided to Spokane and other eastern Washington counties.
