Regional Efforts

The challenges local residents face are not unique to Tukwila, but common to big and small cities alike. No one city can address the issues of homelessness, hunger, affordable housing, and economic security. Tukwila human service staff work on many of these issues regionally, consulting with other cities, King County, and many non-profits. Examples of regional work include work with the Committee to End Homelessness, the United Way of King County, work around siting critical human service facilities, strategies to prevent and end domestic violence, community outreach, and engagement and housing conditions. Human Services also works with aging and disabled services, regional transportation providers, capacity-building organizations and philanthropic institutions. Sub-regional work with other South King County cities aims to raise a collective voice to address the unique strengths and challenges in meeting the needs of the Puget Sound’s diverse populations. Resolution of many problems lies in addressing the systemic challenges that many prevent residents from being as successful as they can be.
