Yakima Federal Savings and Loan Caring for Yakima Children


$80,000. This is the amount of money that Yakima Federal Savings and Loan donates to the Memorial Foundation to help fund the expansion of Yakima’s Children’s Village. This is a place that has helped thousands of children in Yakima with multiple service providers under one roof. The $80,000 contribution will help achieve a campaign goal of $15 million to raise funds to expand the Memorials Children’s Health and Medicine Program.

Thousands of children are helped in the village every year

A Savings and Loan press release states that “Currently, the Children’s Village serves over 9,500 children each year and received over 43,000 visits in 2021. In addition to clinic visits, 300 children are seen delivered to their homes by Children’s Village providers each week. More than 1,400 children are waiting their turn to be cared for at the Children’s Village.” “We are committed to supporting families in Central Washington.” Said Leanne Antonio, president and CEO of Yakima Federal Savings and Loan. “The Children’s Village is meeting the critical needs of families in the area and we are pleased that our contribution will enable further expansion of the services they provide.”

More treatment rooms, more space and more children will be helped in the future

Once the expansion is complete, the Village will see an increase from 10 to 21 treatment rooms and an expansion of physical space by nearly 11,000 square feet.
The expansion also means a staff increase of 60 percent. The village will also increase behavioral health services and serve nearly 1,000 additional children per year after the renovation and expansion. The strong children of today will change the world of tomorrow. said Erin Black, CEO of the Memorial Foundation.
