ABOUT THE LOVE PROJECT
The LOVE Project Yakima was started with the idea of Loving people right where they were at. That we could look beyond the barriers of religion, race or circumstance and simply just LOVE.

A NIGHT OF HOPE
LOVE WITH A PURPOSE
The Love Project Yakima in partnership with In This Together started Sunday Basketball. For two hours on Sunday kids can come get a meal, play basketball and be mentored. We have seen at risk youth attend as well as active gang members from rival sides come and play basketball with each other.
Our goal was to create an environment where youth can feel safe and be a kid for two hours with no worries. A place that is judgment free and a place where they could feel loved.
YAKIMA SCHOOL DISTRICT
The Love Project Yakima has been asked to come into the Yakima School district to work with youth that are struggling with gang involvement or with youth that want to get out of the gang life. Members of The Love Project come to Yakima Middle and High School lunches to hang out with students in hopes of building relationships with them.
