Faced with new challenges and opportunities, Nexus Youth and Families has decided to postpone its annual Valentine’s breakfast, the agency’s longtime charitable fundraiser.

The event, the nonprofit organization’s board and staff member said, will resume as the agency plans and pursues “some big projects for the start of the year.”

For 27 years, Nexus Youth and Families – formerly Auburn Youth Resources – has gathered with the public for the breakfast to celebrate the work being done in the community – tackling the region’s most challenging issues.

According to Nexus, it continues to grow and change. Last year, it reopened the doors to its South King County Youth Shelter after a four-year closure and is beginning to plan for the Arcadia House Project, which would unify branches of Nexus into one state-of-the-art center.

Nexus Youth and Families is a nonprofit committed to youth and their better future in the greater South King County area. It addresses behavioral health, housing and other needs of at-risk and in-crisis youth, young adults and their families. Nexus believes in the power of meeting young people where they are, fitting tools and connections with the needs of each individual’s circumstance, regardless of their background.
