Southwest Youth & Family Services (SWYFS) is a crucial stop for individuals in Southwest King County to transform their futures.

For nearly 40 years, anyone who walks through our doors has access to all of our services and receives integrated, individualized support. From behavioral health and education to family advocacy and youth development.

Our programs see successes everyday – sometimes it’s a huge event that affects the whole community, sometimes it’s a small detail that shows a positive change in a person.

This ranges from…

Knowledge and skills to develop and achieve personal goals around education, mental health, wellbeing, parenting, and self-sustainability.

Hope to persevere and resilience to continue, despite challenges and barriers.

A sense of agency to use their Voice and take on opportunities to be heard.

We are at a moment in time where it is important to stand as neighbors, partners, and friends with those who face an increasingly unjust system.

We believe when we all commit to equity and understanding that we can build a community of acceptance, belonging and hope, where all families thrive.

This is why we place the creation and support of relationships among individuals, families and communities at the forefront of all we do. Our beliefs encompass not just those we serve and who live in our communities, but those we employ or who serve as volunteers.
