Are you a new client? Welcome to Valley Cities.
Your First Step: Call 253.833.7444 to determine eligibility.
Our Clinical Screener team is available Monday through Friday from 7:30am – 6pm. During this call, you will be screened for eligibility and receive important information on what you need to bring with you to your intake.
Next Step: Once you have completed this call, please come in for an in-person intake. You may walk in to any of our eight neighborhood locations any time Monday through Friday from 8:30am to 2pm (availability may vary). If you require an interpreter or have special needs, you are eligible for a scheduled appointment, so please request an appointment during your initial call with the Clinical Screener team.
Note on intake availability: Valley Cities offices are closed in the mornings on the third Wednesday of each month for staff training. Please take that into consideration when planning a time to come in for your intake.
