Up-to-date information about Children's Village services

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, many services and supports at Children's Village have been paused or changed to accommodate our current staffing volumes. This is due to many factors, including the transition, or deployment, of Children's Village staff to Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital to care for patients in the hospital setting. Our hope is this will be short-term, and our staff will be back serving 'Village' families soon. But until then, Children's Village staff are doing their part to care for the most critically ill in our community. Thank you for your support and understanding. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact:

Cindy Carroll, Clinical Director- 509-574-3228
Laura Crooks, CEO- 509-574-3596
