This program specializes in providing culturally appropriate services to homeless families of color, including emergency housing at two enhanced shelters, and other shelter and transitional units throughout the City of Seattle.

We offer an on-site after school program, domestic violence support and advocacy, chemical dependency and mental health services, nurse services, a food bank, teen group and life skills workshops.
