SHSC'S 2017-18 BUDGET REC PORTFOLIO DELIVERED TO THE MAYOR'S OFFICE

SHSC's City Budget Task Force has delivered to the Mayor's Office, a portfolio of SHSC members' recommendations of what we need to do in the 2017-18 budget to come closer to our shared vision of a just and thriving community--one where all Seattle residents can reach their full potential.

We're excited about this portfolio, coordinated and assembled via this year's new process, and encourage you to take a look at the SHSC 2017-18 budget recommendation portfolio for more details.

WE BELIEVE THAT IT IS AN ESSENTIAL HUMAN RIGHT

FOR EVERY PERSON TO HAVE ACCESS

TO THE BASIC NECESSITIES AND RESOURCES

FOR HUMAN SURVIVAL AND ADVANCEMENT. 

THE SEATTLE HUMAN SERVICES COALITION is a multi-racial, multi-cultural group of human service providers and concerned community members committed to helping Seattle-King County residents meet their basic human needs.  Our work is organized through thirteen member coalitions each representing an area of service within the community. These groups of diverse individuals collaborate to identify a shared agenda and mobilize communities to act on  a vision to help our communities meet their basic human needs.

SHAPING PUBLIC POLICY

Together our community and coalition members use what they've learned providing services to provide information to policy makers in order to collectively shape public policy on issues affecting quality childcare, aging, disabilities, sexual assault, healthcare, hunger, homelessness, employments, racial equity and youth development.

We also work with partners in sectors outside of human services, like faith communities, environmentalists, and labor, toward our shared vision of a Just and Thriving Community

WHAT WE DO

We advocate together on issues affecting the residents of Seattle and King County and their abilities to meet their basic human needs. 

We collaborate to shape public policies that promote racial equity and social justice, and also allow our residents to have food when in hunger, access to affordable housing and shelter, safety and affordable healthcare.

We encourage investment in people in order to secure resources that allow our residents to survive, advance, and build healthy communities.

We educate policy-makers and the community, sharing information on current issues related to meeting basic human needs and revealing the face of people described by to statistics.
