Showers

We offer showers, because in the words of one of our most beloved youth, "you gotta stay clean out there."

Clothing

We have a clothing closet offering youth access to a variety of gently used clothing, socks, underwear and toiletries.  We limit youth to six (6) major items a month from items such as shoes, pants, and coats.

Life Skills

These dynamic and engaging classes equip youth with essential skills for exiting street life. Classes are taught by experts in the community who are trained in money management, housing, physical health, substance abuse and employment. Small class sizes forge an intimate family style learning environment that promotes personal growth. The positive community environment reinforces peer to peer learning, teaching a practical skill while building hard skills and soft skills that will increase stability and develop healthier members of society.

Job Training

We currently offer job training on a limited basis at Cup of Cool Water and Cool Water Bikes. In 2019 we will be launching our very own Youth Workforce Development program which is specifically designed to meet the needs of youth ages 18-24 who are experiencing homelessness in the Spokane community. Youth entering the program are welcomed into a community of support, compassion, and empowerment which employs a cohort-style learning environment where peer-to-peer motivation and program attachment stimulate individual and team development within a social enterprise business model.

Internet

Our computer room offers youth access to online job applications, resume completion & printing, email, and social media. Onsite internet is only accessible through through drop-in center computers.
