The YMCA Social Impact Center operates a number of transitional homes, permanent supportive housing units, and shelter housing programs to young people throughout King County. During the holiday season, we offer the opportunity for community members to prepare and/or purchase a meal for our residents. We try to provide at least one meal towards the end of the month in both November and December. Volunteer to cook-a-holiday meal for the residents in our housing programs. Meals are to be prepared off-site and delivered or coordinated to be picked up by a Y staff member to distribute to the relevant housing site.
There are a total of eight housing sites we are supporting with a range of residents from a five-person household to a forty-unit complex. Volunteers can select projects that are within their interest and capacity.
Our mission is simple: To accelerate young people's ability to build safe, successful and happy lives.
The Y Social Impact Center offer services at dozens of program sites in Seattle and King County, building stronger community as part of the YMCA of Greater Seattle’s family of branches and camps. Since 1973, the Y Social Impact Center (formerly Accelerator and Metrocenter) has been a catalyst for sparking young people to build self-confidence, resilience and hope, and to build a brighter future for themselves and their communities.
The Social Impact Center provides a full spectrum of programming that engages young people from different socioeconomic backgrounds and life experiences. 40 years and counting, the Y continues to provide innovative opportunities for youth to become healthier, make better choices, participate in life-changing leadership experiences, and create stronger communities.
