Sunrise Outreach Center is a Christian community development non-profit located in Yakima, Washington. Our purpose is to meet people where they are with the love of Christ and build on what they have.
Sunrise Outreach Center was birthed on the precepts and promises of Isaiah 58:6-9
“Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke? Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter— when you see the naked, to clothe him, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood? Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear, then your righteousness [a] will go before you, and the glory of the LORD will be your rear guard. Then you will call, and the LORD will answer; you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I. ”If you do away with the yoke of oppression, with the pointing finger and malicious talk, (New International Version)

We've entered into partnership with Triumph Treatment Services to run a diaper distrubution function at each of these banks. We provide a week's worth of diapers at the end of each month. We also have a clothing bank in both upper and lower valley's .
Our Soup Kitches has just expanded and changed locations to the SE Community Center. We've partnered with OIC and changed the name to the Martin Luther King Jr Soup Kitchen.
