El Centro de la Raza to host Federal Way open house Feb. 7

El Centro do la Raza’s programs target poverty reduction and self-sufficiency, at the individual, family and community level.

El Centro de la Raza will be hosting an open house celebrating the opening of a new second location in Federal Way.

The event runs from 3-5 p.m. Friday, Feb. 7 at El Centro de la Raza, 1607 S. 341st Place, Federal Way.

The existing affordability crisis in and around the city of Seattle is displacing long-term, low-income residents outside the city, according to El Centro de la Raza. Over 56% of King County Latino residents now reside in South King County. Displaced families face barriers not only in terms of housing, but employment, education, healthcare, financial stability, transportation, access to services, discrimination and safety.

El Centro do la Raza’s programs target poverty reduction and self-sufficiency, at the individual, family and community level. Expanding our services to low-income children, youth, adults, and seniors in South King County is an investment in these communities and a reflection of the organization’s experience connecting people to community-based resources to address their immediate needs while collaborating to foster community resilience, according to the organization.

The center invites the community to join them as they introduce the staff and programs of the organization’s new second location in Federal Way. Since its historical founding in 1972, El Centro de La Raza has grown to be able to provide 42 different programs and services to our participants, community, and visitors.

Light food and refreshments will be provided, one-time parking is available at the following locations:

• Voice of Hope: 1909 S. 341st Place

• Family Life Community Church, 1925 S. 341st Place

• Pattison’s West Skating Center, 34222 Pacific Highway S.

Pattison’s West Skating Center is directly across the street from the building. Follow the designated pathway.
