Pendelton Place

Pendleton Place offers programs that protect, equip, and heal vulnerable children, young adults, and families. We strengthen children while rebuilding families because it’s our goal for each child to have a stable home environment and a bright future. The agency has 3 programs that offer assessment, therapeutic, residential, and community-based services. The Youth Resource Center was established in July, 2019 to build relationships/serve young adults, 17-24, who utilize the program during drop-in hours. These young adults are typically experiencing or at risk of experiencing homelessness.
