Spokane Velocity FC News Release

USL Spokane’s May Community Kit Partners are Roberts Freebourn PLLC as the corporate sponsor and Venessa Behan as the nonprofit organization.

Each month, Spokane Velocity FC’s innovative Community Kit spreads community awareness on the front of player jerseys and in ONE Spokane Stadium. For the month of May, this community support is going to Vanessa Behan with the sponsorship support of Roberts Freebourn PLLC.


Vanessa Behan is a nonprofit organization dedicated to keeping kids safe, strengthening families and creating a healthier community in an environment of inclusion, authenticity and adaptability.

The Community Kit is a first of its kind front-of-kit sponsorship program that features a QR code on the front of the official club kit and throughout the stadium. When fans scan the QR code, they are taken to a website where they can learn more about the month’s organizations and make donations in support of the nonprofit. In addition, USL Spokane donates a portion of the sponsorship funds to the nonprofit at the end of the month.

Vanessa Behan has been a critical source of support for Spokane-area families since its founding in 1987. The crisis nursery offers 24-hour child care for infants and children, parent education, crisis counseling for parents and referrals to other community agencies. Over the past 37 years, the organization has helped more than 100,000 children and their families.

“Vanessa Behan is privately funded,” said Amy Vega, Vanessa Behan Executive Director. “That means it is the innovation and partnership of everyone in this community that allows us to provide care to thousands of local children. The voice of the Community Kit will amplify our work to a broad audience.”

“Spokane Velocity FC is proud to support Vanessa Behan and to work alongside corporate partners who share our values,” said Ryan Harnetiaux, co-owner of USL Spokane. “The Community Kit allows us to extend the value of our front-of-kit sponsorship to organizations like Vanessa Behan that are so critical to the health of our community.”
