Spokane Community Court: Located weekly at the Downtown branch of the Spokane Public Library. "The Community Court collaboration expands the type of assistance available at the library. From 10:30 – 1:00 each Monday, meeting room 1B and the far end of the gallery space are populated with small tables that are staffed by representatives from various service agencies in Spokane. Instead of having to go to each agency separately, participants in Community Court can walk next door and talk to several service providers in one visit. One-stop shopping. They also get lunch (usually donated from First Covenant Church) as an incentive to come and to make sure participants don’t go hungry."
