Spokane Guilds' School & Neuromuscular Center, a nonprofit that helps young children with developmental differences by providing intervention and therapy, has been rebranded to Joya Child & Family Development.
The organization says the new name, which is inspired by the word "joy," represents its dedication to changing the lives of the children and families they serve, and the happiness delivered to the patients by the staff.
The timing of the rebranding aligns with the investment into a new location at 1016 N. Superior St., where they will build a larger home in order to keep up with a growing demand for their services. With their new location, they will be able to double the number of children they can serve from 300 to 600 at a time.
Joya will also be welcoming a new executive director, Colleen Fuchs, after the previous director of 41 years retired. Fuchs was previously program coordinator and is also an alumni parent.
