About Us

STAY Connected was formed in 2014 to provide young people in our community with opportunities to make connections that will help them stay on track and thrive.

We are a tax-deductible, local nonprofit charity licensed in Washington State and registered as a federal 501(c)(3) nonprofit.

We consider our young people and adults who join us as members with equal status for input about our organization. We are a collaborative community working together to learn with each other. Currently, approximately 75 young people are connected to our organization and receive some type of support.
