Collaboration starts with our four core partners that have led this effort from the beginning, ensuring that it stays true to its inclusive, community-based roots.
Core Partner Organizations
White Center Community Development Association (WCCDA) promote a vibrant neighborhood and high quality of life for White Center residents and stakeholders through the development of authentic leadership opportunities and community-led, neighborhood initiatives. We accomplish this through our 3 areas of expertise: neighborhood revitalization, family development, and community building.
Southwest Youth and Family Services (SWYFS) helps people use their own strengths to make what they want of their lives. We offer counseling, education, and family support programs for people in West Seattle, Delridge, White Center, South Park and other neighborhoods.
The Highline Public Schools (HPS) mission is to educate every student and expect excellence. Everything we do is focused on the ultimate goal of seeing each and every student graduate ready for college, career, and citizenship. A district of 17,000+ students, we serve the communities of Burien, White Center, SeaTac, Des Moines and Normandy Park.
The King County Housing Authority (KCHA) provides rental housing and rental assistance to more than 18,000 households. We serve low-income people in 33 cities as well as in unincorporated areas of King County. Through partnerships with communities and nonprofits, KCHA’s housing and supportive services combine to reach more than 48,000 people who earn less than the county median income.
Committed Partner Organizations
White Center Promise is fortunate to have many other committed community-based organizations, government offices, and institutions partner with us. They have been and continue to be instrumental at every level of the initiative including developing the continuum, working on data-sharing agreements, offering in-kind resources, supporting resident leadership, providing event preparation. and collaborating on policy change. These essential partners are at the heart of our work as we move forward.
