In The Community

Seattle Municipal Court Community Outreach

Several times a year, we bring our court services along with supportive social services and resources from our Community Resource Center to Seattle neighborhoods. Past events have been held at the Yesler Community Center, Rainier Beach Community Center, Lake City Community Center and Delridge Community Center.

Upcoming Community Outreach Event

Seattle Municipal Court (SMC) is bringing several court services to the Garfield Community Center on Thursday, May 9th, 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.

Community members will receive assistance with resolving SMC warrants in a non-threatening location, learn about options for addressing Seattle and King County tickets by setting up a payment plan or community service plan, regaining their driver's license, and access supportive services through the Community Resource Center. Court staff will answer questions about court processes, schedule hearings, and provide information on resources and programs available through the court. No appointment is required.  

Supportive services offered on-site at the event include: DSHS benefit enrollment (food, cash, medical, employment pipeline, ID voucher), Medicaid/Apple Health, referral for a vision exam and eye glass vouchers, job training and employment resources, Hepatitis C testing, Orca Lift reduced fare pass and other transportation passes, chemical dependency and mental health referral, Utility Discount Program, referral to a public defender to learn about vacating a felony or misdemeanor conviction and outstanding legal financial obligations, and access to other basic needs and resource referrals.
