Neighbors For Kids has provided quality after-school and summer programs for school-aged youth in Lincoln County for over 14 years. 

Our Kids Zone After-School Program offers:

  Homework help and tutoring in reading and math; 
  Enrichment activities in visual arts & crafts, music, and science & technology;
  Life skills activities in fitness & nutrition; Teen Zone; and
  Community projects, such as the NFK Community Garden, Surfrider Blue Water Task Force, The Killer Whales Rowing Club,
Neighbors For Kids is supported by the USDA Food Program, which provides a healthy, nutritious supper during the school year and summer lunches; by our grantors and donors; and the generosity of our friends and neighbors in Depoe Bay and Lincoln County.
The organization was founded in 1999 as a grass-roots initiative by a group of concerned residents of Depoe Bay to provide a positive place for youth to go after school.  Since then, Kids Zone has grown to over 300 registered youth.  This year alone, we have served over 180, with an average attendance of 35 students from Kindergarten through 12th grade each day.
