A NOTE ON COVID-19

The Yakima County Veterans Program remains open during regular business hours. In order to provide services safely during the pandemic, we ask that those seeking services call in advance: 509-574-1537

Yakima County Human Services has partnered with the Health District, the City of Yakima, and many providers and government entities in the Valley to provide resources and assistance in response to this pandemic. The priorities for the Human Service Department are:

  1. Create isolation and quarantine beds for those who become infected but do not have homes suitable for recovery.
  2. Reduce transmission by increasing safety and hygiene measures in homeless shelters and other congregate program settings.

For service providers seeking assistance with procuring COVID-19 related supplies, please submit a request to the Yakima Valley Needs site here.

For small businesses experiencing revenue loss due to COVID-19, please see the Small Business Coronavirus Assistance Fund, hosted in partnership with the Yakima County Development Association. Note: Application for these grants are now closed.

For community members seeking to provide support to our nonprofits during this difficult time, please see donation and volunteer opportunities here.

For community members seeking information about rental assistance during COVID-19, please see our flyers here:
