477 Child Care and Youth Centers


After reassessing current air quality both outside and inside our facilities, it has been determined that the 477 child cares and youth centers will remain closed for the remainder of the week.

This decision has been made to ensure the safety of the children we serve. The status of air quality will be monitored closely over the next several days and a decision will be made on Sunday in regard to the possible re-opening on Monday September 21, 2020.

This closure includes the Pauline Stearns ELC, TANF Children’s Center, Ford Youth Center, West End Youth Center and Spokane Youth Center.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and greatly appreciate your understanding as we move forward with the safety of your children being our number one priority.
