The Bright Space features a study and computer lab where teens can use laptops for homework and study as well as develop skills utilizing 21st Century technology such as coding and creating art using tools like Photoshop. In addition, youth have the opportunity to gather and socialize while building positive relationships with peers and supportive adults.

“Family Village Issaquah is here to help all our young residents build stability, many who have experienced homelessness, hunger, or domestic violence,” said Gina Yarwood, director of YWCA’s regional services in suburban King County. “With this new space, we can better meet their needs for growth and development, and help them build a brighter future.”
