Sky Valley Integrated Service Center
the center of it all
The Center serves as a hub for families, youth, and seniors by offering an array of programming that promotes a safe, stable, and healthy community.
Included on the campus is the Sky Valley Resource Center that connects families in crisis and those experiencing homelessness with available basic need resources, including other local services to support them back to stability.
Our Early Childhood Education and Assistance Program (ECEAP) serves 60 children from low-income households in providing high-quality preschool, along with home visiting and parenting support for families through the North County Early Head Start program serving families with children 2 years and younger. Family Support Specialists connect families to available resources and help support plans towards stability and self-sufficiency to break the cycle of intergenerational poverty many rural households face.
Our Sky Valley Youth Coalition (SVYC) aims to keep teens above the influence of harmful substances, free from self-harm and suicide, and resilient to bullying. The SVYC hosts a safe space for teens after school, and provides service opportunities, connections to supportive and trustworthy adult mentors, and exposure to post-secondary education and employment opportunities.
The Sky Valley Senior and Community Center also resides on the campus, and hosts an active schedule of lunches and activities every week to help seniors engage with community members and decrease isolation. Our hunger prevention efforts also include the Sky Valley Elderly Nutrition Delivery program (SEND), providing nutritionally-prepared weekly meals that are delivered to vulnerable homebound seniors.
The Sultan Food Bank is an important support for low-income families in Sky Valley, serving roughly 400 households a month. With almost 12,000 total visits in 2018, food insecurity continues to be a challenge for many in this rural community.
