Please Help The Red Barn

The Red Barn Youth Center needs your help to stay open. 

We do not charge for our after school program so that all students can attend.  We rely entirely on grants and your generous donations to fund the operations of the Red Barn. 

We have received some generous funding for expansion of the facility.  We are very thankful for that funding.  The students will benefit greatly, but those are designated funds and cannot be used for program expenses.  We need funds for day to day operations, such as staffing and utilities.

The Red Barn is a safe and welcoming place for middle school and high school youth to get help with homework, learn life skills and develop positive relationships.  It is the only program of its kind on the Key Peninsula.

Please help as you are able.  Thank you.

The Red Barn Youth Center is located on the Key Peninsula, a semi-rural area approximately 25 miles from Tacoma, WA.  The Key Peninsula is beautiful but it is remote.  As such there are limited opportunities for young people to participate in constructive activities.
