Neighbors For Kids has successfully completed several capital improvements
to their 7,600 square foot youth facility over the last year. This includes
installing a type 1 commercial kitchen hood with fire suppression system,
commercial stove, front security fence and touchless plumbing fixtures.
The capital project aims to improve fire safety, prevent surface-borne germs and
illness, increase safety near the front entrance, and expand numbers of meals
served. This work was generously supported by the USDA Rural Community
Facilities Grant, Siletz Tribal Charitable Contribution Fund, The Ford Family
Foundation, Lincoln County Community & Economic Development Fund and
NFK’s Kids Zone program will be closed for the remaining of the summer to
complete additional capital improvements required in the facility. NFK is
changing its building occupancy to accommodate the growing programs and
this involves construction work to meet current fire safety code, such as
adding a new fire sprinkler system, making fire alarm system upgrades and re-
striping the parking lot.
NFK plans to re-open in the Fall under strict guidelines to operate as an
emergency child care center during COVID-19. The safety and well-being of
children, staff and volunteers are the priority during these challenging times.
The local non-profit organization is looking forward to opening their doors
again and serving the needs of families in Lincoln County.
