The City of Spokane began working on a concept for a collaborative social services site, in June 2017 with the goal of reducing barriers for those seeking services. The hard work of City employees and local providers is paying off with the opening of an EnVision Center in early January 2019.
There are 18 designated EnVision Centers in the United States. EnVision Centers are centralized hubs that serve as an incubator to support four key pillars of self-sufficiency— (1) Economic Empowerment, (2) Educational Advancement, (3) Health and Wellness, and (4) Character and Leadership.
Spokane’s EnVision Center located at 130 S. Arthur Street, will serve as a one stop shop for services. Our EnVision Center will include; housing assistance, health care access, employment, re-entry/justice, basic needs (food assistance, clothing closet), benefits, peer mentoring and educational workshops.
The EnVision Center will be open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
