Vanessa Behan’s vision is to provide immediate refuge for children and support to strengthen families. This evolved from the tragic story of Vanessa Kay Behan, a Spokane girl who died from child abuse injuries at the age of two. Following her death, a group of local business people established the organization so that parents would have a safe place to bring their children in the face of crises.

Their primary services are:

  • 24-hour child care for infants and children under the age of seven
  • Parent education
  • Crisis counseling for parents
  • Referrals to other community agencies
