In addition to being the home of 10 Agency Partners, The Northeast Community Center has several programs that have been designed to meet the needs of local residents.

The ZONE is a resident-led initiative that works with partner organizations to bring programs and resources to Northeast Spokane. We have 80+ partners who are working on:

  • Housing
  • FREE after school and summer programs for children
  • Food Security
  • Employment development

The ZONE is constantly working on new things, and you can learn more on their website.

Do you qualify for our new Housing Stability Program? If you answer YES to all of the following questions, please fill out our quick survey to be put on the waitlist:

  • Do you live in Northeast Spokane?
  • Do you have children in Northeast schools (or schools that feed to Yasuhara Middle School)?
  • Do you have a lease or mortgage?
  • Are you willing to increase your income over the next year?

The Farmer's Market is located at the Community Center every Monday June—October (dates vary by year) from 3:00-7:00 p.m. We have many vendors selling fresh produce, honey, gifts, and more.

Throughout the market season, we host several Community Resource Fairs that add more fun to the market! They often include games, raffles, free food, community organization tables, and children's activities.

Information Access Center

The Information Access Center is a complimentary service in the Northeast Community Center lobby. We have two computers available on a first come, first served basis. We also have free wifi. People use the computers for:

  • Email
  • Resumes
  • Job search
  • Printing court documents
  • School work
  • Research
  • Faxing
  • And more!

Other Programs

Every year the center hosts events and fundraisers that benefit our community. We generally have partner organizations that sponsor or provide assistance with each event.
