Crisis Clinic LogoCrisis Clinic is at the heart of the Seattle-King County safety net providing a broad array of telephone-based crisis intervention and information and referral services. For many people in emotional distress or needing community services assistance, we are their “first call for help.” Each year, we improve the lives of thousands of people by listening, caring and linking to services. “When you need us, we’re here!”

Crisis Clinic is state licensed by DSHS/DBHR as a crisis telephone service provider and as a certified chemical dependency treatment service—crisis intervention. We are also nationally accredited by CONTACT USA and the Alliance of Information and Referral Systems. As one of the oldest crisis lines in the nation, we continue to be committed to providing excellent service to all who contact us.

Our passion is caring and listening; empowering people to make positive life changes. We do this through connections between people and critical resources.
Crisis Clinic connects people in physical, emotional and financial crisis to services that will be of help.
We do this to reduce immediate emotional distress and defuse crises for individuals, families and the community; to reduce the immediate risk of violence to one’s self and others; and to increase the ability of people to access the safety net, particularly for mental and emotional support services.
Crisis Clinic serves all people (in physical, emotional and financial crisis) with an emphasis on serving King County residents.

Seattle Amistad School LogoAt Seattle Amistad School, we foster community integrity through rigorous bilingual and bicultural education, developing our students’ academic strengths and cultural sensibilities, while nurturing compassionate and engaged citizens.

We believe that children learn and grow best in an environment that respects and nurtures all aspects of their lives. From children’s cultural and linguistic contexts, to their different academic interests and strengths, to their roles as dynamic participants in their families and communities, we encourage children to grow and challenge themselves in every area. We believe that art, music, food, play, and movement are essential components of our lives and our cultures, and should not be separated from children’s education. In fact, we believe that all of these dimensions are essential for a meaningful, transformative academic experience.

We believe that children have a right to nurture and strengthen the cultural and linguistic connections to their families and communities, and to use those strengths as the foundation for a rigorous academic experience. We believe that all children need the linguistic and cultural skills to navigate and influence the complex global society of the future, in order to bring about greater peace and justice for our communities and our world.

At Seattle Amistad School, we envision a community where children don’t have to choose between connection to their cultural values and a good education. Indeed, we know that schools are most successful when they are grounded in and develop students’ cultural and linguistic assets. We envision a community where all students are able to navigate both their own cultural contexts, and those of others. We know that children who have the tools to bridge cultural and linguistic divides will be leaders in creating a more just, compassionate world.

Our music education programs provide girls with an opportunity to participate in an environment that fosters leadership, encourages social change, and cultivates a supportive community of female peers and mentors.

“I feel when I’m performing is indescribable. It’s like everything else disappears and it’s just me, the microphone and my true feelings. In every word something new arises within me and though I may not be the best singer in the world I feel like a superstar when I express myself through song.”

Ventura Land Trust logoThe mission of the Ventura Land Trust is to permanently protect the land, water, wildlife and scenic beauty of the Ventura region for current and future generations.
The Ventura Land Trust, a community based nonprofit organization, believes that preserving open space and providing public access enhances the economy, quality of life, and public well-being of Ventura and surrounding communities. With local partners, the VLT works to protect the natural beauty of our area. The Land Trust builds trails, restores habitat, plants trees, and cleans up our rivers.
The Ventura Land Trust envisions a Ventura with more trails, more hiking, more biking, and more opportunity to enjoy natural areas. The VLT envisions more preserved open space that balances the protection of wildlife and the environment. Working with willing landowners, land is either protected via acquisition or through a land conservation agreement.

Multi-Agency Alliance for Children logoMAAC (The Multi-Agency Alliance for Children) has been approaching child welfare and behavioral healthcare with an innovative, custom-tailored approach for nearly 20 years.

In 1996, several private non-profit agency directors gathered together to create what ultimately became the MAAC collaborative. These directors were driven to create “a new way of doing business” in the field of behavioral healthcare. Their vision was to create a seamless continuum of care to address all of the needs of the child, adolescent and family while reducing treatment “failures” and uncoordinated multiple placements.

By teaming together to create a continuum of collaborative care, each MAAC member-agency maintains their individuality and expertise in the service areas they uniquely provide. This team approach eliminates the duplication of services across multiple agencies, reducing the risk of becoming “spread too thin.”

Iberian Horse Rescue, a 501 (c) (3) charity, started as a social media net-working page to save horses of Iberian type that were found in auctions and kill pens, headed for slaughter. In 2014, IHR branched out and a hand’s-on rescue was formed.
IHR’s rescue efforts are supported 100% by public donations. Only with the help of our donors, sponsors and volunteers is IHR able to rescue, rehabilitate, re-train, revalue and re-home these generous horses.
Our work gives the horses we save the chance to have a dignified life worthy of their heritage as treasured war horses!
