Safe and Thriving Youth and Adults

Youth and Family Empowerment--a division of the Seattle Human Services Department--invite community members and service providers to participate in a co-design process that will inform the 2019 safety funding opportunity. The purpose of the co-design is to create city-funded strategies that inform what agencies and groups need to support youth (12 to 17-years old), young adults (18 to 24-years old) and adults (25-years old and over) involved in the justice system. The co-design will consist of 15 community engagement sessions facilitated by Equitable Development, LLC. Each session is 90-minutes long and seeks to build off the results of the prior session. 

The co-design allows HSD to learn about what works for people most impacted by the justice system and service providers. Once the co-design is complete, it will inform the guidelines and application for the 2019 safety funding opportunity. 

Below is a chart of the dates, times and locations for the remaining co-design sessions. Participants may register with this link
