NFK Works Completes Several Improvement Projects


Neighbors For Kids has successfully completed several capital improvements

to their 7,600 square foot youth facility over the last year. This includes

installing a type 1 commercial kitchen hood with fire suppression system,

commercial stove, front security fence and touchless plumbing fixtures.


The capital project aims to improve fire safety, prevent surface-borne germs and

illness, increase safety near the front entrance, and expand numbers of meals

served. This work was generously supported by the USDA Rural Community

Facilities Grant, Siletz Tribal Charitable Contribution Fund, The Ford Family

Foundation, Lincoln County Community & Economic Development Fund and

individual contributions.


NFK’s Kids Zone program will be closed for the remaining of the summer to

complete additional capital improvements required in the facility. NFK is

changing its building occupancy to accommodate the growing programs and

this involves construction work to meet current fire safety code, such as

adding a new fire sprinkler system, making fire alarm system upgrades and re-

striping the parking lot.


NFK plans to re-open in the Fall under strict guidelines to operate as an

emergency child care center during COVID-19. The safety and well-being of

children, staff and volunteers are the priority during these challenging times.

The local non-profit organization is looking forward to opening their doors

again and serving the needs of families in Lincoln County.
