Community Resource Center Updates – October 16, 2023

In this week’s Community Corner newsletter:

  • Are you between the ages of 12 and 24 or know someone who is? It’s time to invest in mental health! Often times the actions of young people stem from what is going on within them. In this program, youth will be incentivized by stipend to seek counseling and participate in therapy, fostering a want for assistance and healthy mental health development. Participants will be paid $25 per session for 12 sessions and will be paired with a therapist that they feel comfortable with. Sessions will be in-person or virtual, and can be individual, group or with family. Learn more.
  • Visit the Federal Way Community Resource Center on the first and third Thursdays of each month from September 21 through December 21 at the Federal Way Library from 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. for cash assistance, employment and training education, housing assistance, food assistance, health/Medicare, legal assistance, dispute resolution, mental health treatment, substance use treatment, transportation assistance, and more! No registration required. Learn more.
  • How can the S Train work better for you? Sound Transit is looking for your input as they update plans for Sounder South, the train that connects Lakewood and Seattle with seven stops in between. Would new trips midday, in the evenings, or on the weekends work better for you than the current plan to prioritize longer trains that add more capacity during peak periods? Learn more and share your thoughts here.
