Community Resource Center Updates – April 17, 2023

In this week’s Community Corner newsletter:

  • State distribution of free at-home COVID-19 tests will end on May 11, 2023, as the pandemic moves into a state of recovery. Federally supplied free at-home COVID-19 tests remain available while supplies last. Learn more.
  • Free dental, vision, and medical care will be available to anyone who struggles to access and/or afford healthcare for four days at Seattle Center. The clinic is scheduled for April 27-30, 2023. A limited number of admission tickets are distributed, beginning at 5:30 AM, on a first-come, first-served basis (one ticket per person) in Fisher Pavilion at Seattle Center. Patients will NOT be asked for ID or documentation of any type. Masks are required. Learn more here.
  • The Veterans Training Support Center (VTSC), a program of the Washington Department of Veterans Affairs and funded by the VSHSL, is dedicated to raising awareness and understanding of trauma and related issues specific to veterans, such as invisible wounds like Post Traumatic Stress, Traumatic Brain Injury, and Moral Injury. VTSC workshops are free, open to all, and are veteran-focused but applicable to others. More information is available here.
  • Chief Seattle Club is opening up for meal services again! Members can now eat in-house meals in the dining room. This service is for registered members only. During open hours, members can also use the service window to pick up or drop off mail and pick up applications for housing and homeless prevention.

  • The Washington State Department of Health and Human Services has a new series of videos meant to help clients avoid lines at DSHS offices and wait times on the phones. The videos describe how to use the self-service options, apply for services online, create a client benefit account, and complete medical-only eligibility reviews. Learn more here.
