Spokane Guilds' School & Neuromuscular Center announces new name and plans for growth

Spokane Guilds' School & Neuromuscular Center, a non-profit organization that serves children ages birth to three with developmental delays and disabilities, is now Joya Child & Family Development.

Joya's new name and brand coincides with an exciting period of change happening within the organization, including the investment in a new home that will allow them to accommodate an increased need for their services. Joya purchased the former St. Joseph Center Family Center at 1016 N. Superior in the University District in 2017. With plans underway to build a larger facility on that land in order to serve as many children and families in Spokane County as possible, Joya's leadership recognized the need to better engage and connect with the broader community.

The rebrand is a strategic decision to bring greater awareness around the life-changing program Joya provides and better reflect the joy, positivity, care and experience the staff delivers to children and families. The name also reflects the organization's current period of expansion and its plan to increase its impact in our community.

New screening protocols being used by primary care providers are identifying more children with developmental delays, increasing the need for the type of vital services Joya provides. Joya currently is able to serve about 300 children with their existing staffing and facilities, but their new building and increased staff will double enrollment to nearly 600.

The name Joya Child & Family Development, is inspired by the word 'Joy' and has roots which mean 'jewel,' 'gem' or 'treasure.' It was inspired by the organization's conviction that each child is a person to be discovered, revealed and treasured.
