Programs & Services
"The impact of poverty on access to legal justice and racial justice cannot be overstated. The Center's goal is to be a bridge to services for those who would otherwise not be able to afford them." - Sandy Williams, September 1, 2022
We partnered with the City of Spokane to provide
rental assistance funding to African Americans and the BIPOC population in the greatest need.
Our Rental Assistance Application Portal is not open to the general public.
We are accepting & reviewing applications on a case-by-case basis. A member of the rental assistance program team will contact you after your application has been submitted.
We provide technical and financial support to local Black businesses to remove barriers to success and promote sustainability. We formed the Black Business & Professional Alliance, the Black Business Support Team and created an online Black Business Directory at blackspokane.com.
Student Tech Fund
We partnered with Comcast to provide technology and supplies to students who struggled with remote learning during the COVID-19 pandemic in order to prevent students of color from falling further behind.
We provided access to COVID-19 education, resources and testing. We also partnered with the Native Project, Terrain, the Spokane Minister's Fellowship and Freedom Project East to provide COVID-19 vaccination clinics.
We participate in community events throughout the year, including Juneteenth, Unity in the Community, East Central Community Celebration and Santa Clause joined us at this year's Riverfront Park Tree Lighting Ceremony.
