Leadership

White Center Promise was initiated by the White Center community and then further developed by three Core Partner organizations: Southwest Youth and Family Services, the White Center Community Development Association, and Highline Public Schools. In 2014, King County Housing Authority also became a Core Partner.

The White Center Community Development Association is the fiscal and management entity of WCP. However, the four Core Partners work together with selected resident leaders on all high-level vision and strategy decisions through the Core Leadership Team which meets monthly.
