Safe Yakima Valley is a Yakima-based non-profit organization, dedicated to improving and safeguarding our community. Through outreach, education and special events, we strive to highlight what’s best about the Yakima Valley and create positive change throughout our beautiful community via our drug-free coalition and our youth mentoring program.


Our vision is for the Yakima Valley to be known as one of the safest places to live, work and
