About Our Grantee

Southwest Youth and Family Services

For nearly 40 years Southwest Youth and Family Services (SWYFS) has been providing critical services in significantly under-resourced communities of Southwest King County, including Southwest Seattle, White Center, South Park, Burien, and SeaTac. As systemic racial and economic inequities continue to create significant barriers to communities of color across the nation, SWYFS remains committed to seeing our diverse community of South King County thrive. Participants in SWYFS programs are 61% children and youth, 92% people of color, 95% low-income (89% very low-income), and over 50% refugees and immigrants.

Our vision is that all residents of Southwest King County flourish and actively participate in the success of the community.
