A warm and safe place to stay helps us feel relaxed and secure, and helps us function better in all the other areas of our life. In selecting a place to stay, it is very important to use good judgment. If you need a place to stay, contact YES (509)671-7293, and Judi Lee will help you find a safe and warm place to stay.
