Our service opportunities are to serve the underserved in our community. Homelessness is a major issue in Seattle. We support the Downtown Emergency Services Center which works to end the homelessness of vulnerable people, particularly those living with serious mental illnesses or substance use disorders. Through partnerships and an integrated array of comprehensive services, treatment and housing, we give people the opportunity to reach their highest potential. At DESC, uncommon efforts produce uncommon results that eliminate homelessness, one person at a time.
