Here we grow again!
CYS offices are in the transit building in Shelton.

All are invited to an open house at our new Mason County location, Second Floor, 601 West Franklin Street, Shelton, from 4 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 22. The offices will be used by any CYS case managers and will also house staff from our Transitional Age Youth counseling program.
In July, CYS opened offices for our Parents As Teachers program in Lewis County. It is at 414 North Tower Street, Suite 1, Centralia. To learn more, call PAT director Sandra McClanahan, 360-918-7843.
Also, CYS-Pierce County is growing. We recently got funds to build a crisis residential center there, set to open this fall. It's a step toward a permanent site in Tacoma.   Read more here.
Finally, the Young Adult Shelter in downtown Olympia now has a secure financial future.
Back to school!

As our young people head back to learning, we find we are short on BACKPACKS! That's our biggest need, so if you can donate, please drop them by our main office, 711 State Avenue NE, Olympia, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. weekdays. We could also use regular and dry-erase markers, scissors and hand sanitizer.
