Joya Child & Family development breaks ground on new building by Gonzaga

 After years of planning and dreaming, Joya Child & Family Development, formerly known as the Spokane Guild School will soon move to their own building. A building that is much larger then their current home on W. Garland and built for their needs and the needs of the children they serve, ages birth-3.

Earlier today we joined an impressive crowd of supporters, media and others that gathered for Joya's ground breaking ceremony. They spoke about their plan to construct the building on a site in the 1000 block of N. Superior, near the corner of Superior & Desmet, just steps from the Spokane River and near Gonzaga University. Actual construction will start soon as they report the $18.5 million project is already about 60% financed and they continue to actively seek capital.

The new Joya Child & Family Development facility will be a roughly 40,500 square foot building, that's more then twice the size of their current home. The new facility will include individual treatment and therapy rooms, pediatric clinic space, group space and support offices. They plan to move into the new building in May of 2022, shortly before then end of their lease at the current space on Garland.
