Coulee Medical Center ER and Walk-In Care

Boys & Girls Club a welcome addition


The establishment of a Boys & Girls Club at the Nespelem Community Center has a lot of potential to make a big difference in the lives of many children and for the community.

Many have been advocating to bring in the national organization for years, citing its success at providing a “safe, affordable place for kids and teens during critical out-of-school time.”

That kind of focus, in areas such as art, cyber safety, healthy habits, education, character and leadership and even career development can make a big difference.

The organization spent $187 million in its national role of overseeing more than 4,300 clubs serving 4 million young people in 2015, according to its most recent published financial statements.

If a tiny fraction of the effort for youth that those figures represent makes its mark in Nespelem, it can make a lasting difference in that community, as well as in the Grand Coulee Dam area, where Nespelem’s kids attend high school.
