70th Extreme Team Project
Our call for entries, asking our community: what organizations need the volunteer help and ingenuity of the Extreme Team, identified Partners with Families & Children as a local non-profit agency deserving of help! In partnership with BECU, The Extreme Team (Mark Peterson and many volunteers!) will be creating a serenity garden to help both the families and staff at the agency.
Partners with Families and Children prevents, interrupts and repairs cycles of abuse and neglect within families. They have been serving the Spokane community for 30 years and have seen a 40%+ increase in demand for their services from the Children’s Advocacy Center in the past year alone. The rise in family stress, addiction and homelessness, causes children to become our community’s most helpless victims. A new larger building was recently purchased to bring more services under one roof, but landscaping and an inspirational garden area to meet therapists and groups was put on hold after other repairs took precedence. Through the Extreme Team, sponsors and donations, the garden will become a reality for children and families to go for healing and rejuvenation.
