From the beginning, SOC has been focused on serving those struggling with the effects of poverty; indeed, people experiencing hunger and homelessness in Yakima are in high numbers. Until recently our services have been limited to provision of basic needs: food, water and shelter. We've grown to hold five food banks, two clothing banks and in partnership with Triumph Treatment Services operate two diaper banks. We operate a daily soup and sandwich ministry to those with the highest needs at our help center and main office at the Vineyard Church in Yakima. Earlier this year, SOC received a Behavioral Rehabilitation Services (BRS) license from DSHS to operate two youth residential and education centers for teens 12 to 18. Our girls home is the Sunrise House and our boys home is called the Powerhouse. These homes are committed to measurable interventions and education for youth that can't be housed elsewhere. Our hope is that youth having a safe and caring environment can begin to heal, get needed help with their education and can begin to develop sustainability skills; thus preventing a potential struggle with the effects of poverty as they become adults.
