Help Us Operate the New Arcadia
We need your help. While Nexus Youth and family realizes that ultimately, it is impossible to serve everyone who seeks assistance, our goal is to substantially increase the number we are able to support and house. The leadership at Nexus Youth and Families plans to expand the services of Arcadia Shelter by constructing a new 11,000 square foot facility. This space will house 15 bedrooms, a commercial kitchen, common areas, office space, and an emergency overnight shelter that can accommodate 12 young adults age 18-24.
The State of Washington, King County, and the City of Auburn have already pledged their support to this campaign, and the building will break ground in 2017, but there is still a large portion that is needed to operate this project once it’s complete. We hope that you will decide to join us in this community endeavor because every young person should be healthy, housed, and connected to their community.
