Community Outreach Center

A Place to Call Our Own

This is an exciting and challenging time for APOYO. We are building on more than 25 years of service to our community and transitioning off CWU’s campus to a new facility on land we lease from the Independent Order of Odd Fellows Ellensburg Lodge 20.

APOYO will continue to serve as a food pantry and become a gathering place, too! The APOYO outreach center will empower members to mutually provide food and other material support, offer and receive education through classes and workshops on topics relevant to the community, and host multicultural social activities.

APOYO is very fortunate to have the support of the Inatai Foundation. APOYO received an Inatai Community Learning Grant and their President’s Fund Award in 2021.

We have received other generous gifts to help make it possible to open the doors of the community center, but we still have a long way to go to raise the funds we need to complete the project. Community support will ensure APOYO’s success.

Join our mission!
