The Martin Luther King, Jr. Family Outreach Center

Is a non-profit, community-based social service agency located in East Central Spokane, one of the most ethnically diverse neighborhoods in Spokane County.

In the framework of Dr. King’s vision of equal respect, treatment, and accessibility for all people, the Center has provided culturally responsive education, enrichment and family support services to children and parents throughout Spokane County since 1970.

Today, the Center is a regionally recognized community leader in providing research-based best practice services that ensure school success and healthy families, while maintaining a strong neighborhood base to help build the East Central community.
