Teen-Aid Family Center
723 E Jackson, Spokane, WA 99207
The Teen-Aid Family Center (TFC) will be a home away from home for students. TFC hours will be Monday-Friday, 8am-5pm, except holidays. It will be a structured, supervised and safe environment for students grades 1-12 to work on online school while their parents are at work. TFC is not a daycare with the stigma of being babysat, it is a family center to provide support for parents new to at-home school or online school programs. It is also a chance for online students to meet not just their academic needs, but their social, emotional, spiritual and physical fitness needs. TFC will also have supplemental enrichment activities like arts, cooking, music, etc. for students to participate in after their online schooling is completed.
The Teen-Aid Family Center has a Computer Corner for students to work on their online schooling, including some computers for student use and spaces for students to plug in and use their laptops/tablets. The center has a secured outdoor recreation area for educational physical activities, an indoor recreation area with games, and a classroom for extracurricular supplemental activities and presenters.
The Teen-Aid Family Center will open November 16th. TFC will remain open through December 30th, while seeking funding to remain open longer.
Monthly Membership is FREE!! Teen-Aid is a recipient of the Spokane County CARES funding.

The Teen-Aid mission has always been to build character and families while serving the Spokane community. The struggle, now, for families is great, but students who are left alone face some of the biggest difficulties.

- Get into trouble or form unhealthy relationships
