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, Delridge Community Center and Garfield Community Center.

These outreach events are an opportunity for community members to receive assistance with resolving Seattle Municipal Court 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, get help with regaining their driver's license, and access supportive services through the Community Resource Center. Court staff are present to answer questions about court processes, schedule hearings, and provide information on resources and programs available through the court.

Supportive services offered on-site at past events include DSHS benefit enrollment (food, cash, medical, employment pipeline, ID voucher), Medicaid/Apple Health, referrals for vision exams and eye glass vouchersjob training and employment resourcesHepatitis C testingORCA Lift reduced fare pass and other transportation passes, chemical dependency and mental health referralsUtility Discount Program information, referrals to public defenders to learn about vacating a felony or misdemeanor conviction and outstanding legal financial obligations, and access to other basic needs and resource referrals.
