Shelter Landscape Remodel

This spring YWCA Spokane finally launched into the much-needed landscape remodeling project at our domestic violence safe shelter location due to the initial grant contribution provided by the Frank M Gertrude R Doyle Foundation.

In addition to an amazing contribution by the above foundation, we were able to partner with over 20 local businesses who invested the products, services, and volunteer hours required to completed this massive project.

The project was off to a great start with 80 Comcast employees providing over $10,000 worth of in-kind labor and materials during Comcast Cares Days to help transform the lot into a park like setting for the women and children residing at our safe shelter.

The transition includes creating age appropriate place spaces for children, a tranquility garden, a covered picnic area, a built in BBQ, wheelchair access throughout the garden, shade trees and fruit trees to create additional privacy and enjoyment. Overall the remodel with redesign the space to give survivors a private, calm space to process and begin to heal from the recent trauma they have experienced.

We are thrilled to finally have the chance complete this make over, and are happy to be providing a beautiful, safe, fun and welcoming outdoor space for the families we serve.
