Daybreak Youth Services, a nonprofit provider of adolescent addiction and mental health treatment services in Washington state, will hold its annual fundraising gala for Southwest Washington on March 10 at Pearson Air Museum in Vancouver.
All proceeds from the Country Western-themed “Hootenanny at the Hangar” will support Daybreak’s Paths to Prosperity program in Vancouver and Brush Prairie. The program connects the clients at Daybreak to enrichment activities in the community so that they can develop a love for clean and sober living and are empowered to take the next steps in building futures for themselves.
The Hootenanny at the Hangar will kick off at 6 p.m. inside the Historic Hangar at Pearson (1115 E Fifth St., Vancouver). The event will feature a country barbecue, games, line dancing, a paddle raise and an auction. Sponsors include The Vancouver Clinic, Kaiser Permanente and The Columbian.

About Paths to Prosperity
The Paths to Prosperity program was first introduced at Daybreak’s Spokane facility in 2016. Providing clients with enrichment activities including meditation, dance therapy, art therapy, career planning, college tours, and affiliations with local churches and youth groups, the program has helped clients in Eastern Washington learn about healthy replacements for chemical dependency.
Since its implementation two years ago, treatment completion rates in Spokane have increased by 20 percent, critical incidents have decreased by 40 percent, and satisfaction surveys have improved with clients often listing Paths to Prosperity activities as a key element in their recovery process.
