Seattle is at its best when all of us can live up to our potential and contribute our diverse gifts and talents to our communities. Seattle's ability to thrive now and in the future depends upon our ability to build economic, emotional, physical, developmental, and social well-being for all community members.
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-cultural, multi-racial community of human service providers and concerned individuals. Coalition members help Seattle residents reach their full potential. They run hundreds of agencies and programs throughout the city that provide support like food, shelter, health care, and services for people with disabilities, elders, youth, and survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault.
SHAPING PUBLIC POLICY
Together our community and coalition members use what they've learned providing services to inform policy makers in order to collectively shape public policy to build well-being in communities throughout Seattle.
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.
