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 served over 400 registered youth.  In 2015 alone, we served over 180 youth, with an average attendance of 35 students from Kindergarten through 12th grade each day.
