Provides a safe place to live for 20 children (age 2-12) who have been removed from their parents, caregivers, or unfit homes.
Sally’s House is the only emergency foster care program in Washington, providing CPS emergency foster care for children.  Some of the children have been abandoned, abused or neglected.  Others are victims of domestic violence.  Some lived with sex offenders or in drug houses, their parents arrested and taken to jail. 

Children often arrive upset, disoriented, and with little more than the clothes on their back.  At Sally’s House, children receive clothes, meals, social skills, tutoring, transportation to their original school, activities, supervised visits with family, books, toys, a personal quilt, and on-site counseling. 

Children can stay up to 90 days while the Dept. of Children and Family Services works to find a relative or foster placement.  From 2002-2015 Sally’s House cared for more than 3,600 children.  They serve approximately 365 children a year in Spokane County.
