An Assertive and Unified Voice
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 such as hunger intervention, domestic violence prevention and response, early education, eliminating institutional racism, community healthcare and homelessness to name only a few. 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.
Our primary goal is to build support for stable, dedicated and adequate funding for community health and human services needed to strengthen communities and to reduce the need for emergency services.
