King County plans to use a large vacant building it owns, formerly a Public Health Clinic, as an overnight shelter for people experiencing homelessness.  The building is located at SW 108th and 8th Ave SW, next to the White Center food bank.

Your thoughts about how to make this work for our community are invited on September 15, 2016, 6:30pm-8:00pm, at the TAF Bethaday Community Learning Space (605 SW 108th St).  Translation, childcare, light refreshments provided.

White Center Adventure Maps! This map is a great way to find something to do on a weekend day in White Center. Many locations on the maps are of walk able distance, so it’s a fun way to get everyone in the community walking! Check off locations’ blank boxes as you go, after 5 places are visited, anyone can cut out and return the raffle piece that’s on the front of the map to the White Center CDA (605 SW 108th Street, Seattle, WA 98146) for a chance to be drawn in our raffle.

On the back side of the map there are many common resources found here in White Center. Feel free to print out and use as a resource list for family, friend and neighbors!

White Center has an abundance of early learning options for parents and families to use, eligibility requirements differ for each program and may be confusing so we’ve compiled everything into one with the appropriate contact information for each program.  Please see the image below or click here for the PDF.

Press release

Information from the WCCDA

The White Center Community Development Association (WCCDA) is gearing up for the 2015 Spring Clean event to take place May 16th 2015. White Center Spring Clean is an opportunity for volunteers and residents to take part in an annual spruce up of White Center through projects aimed at cleaning up and beautifying the neighborhood.

“Spring Clean is a hands-on way to get involved in making your community, literally, a better place. Whether it’s gardening, graffiti removal, bringing in more art or whatever is identified as a community need: everyone in White Center benefits from having a neighborhood with cleaner and improved spaces to show that people in this community care about where they live and/or run a business,” says White Center CDA’s business district manager, Vy Nguyen. “Spring Cleans are fun and a great way to connect with others that care about community, plus a way to score a free I ‘heart’ White Center t-shirt!”

Spring Clean projects come from the community, as WCCDA supports resident-led action in White Center’s development. Each day will start at the White Center CDA office (605 SW 108th St. Seattle 98146) with a light breakfast before volunteers go to their project assignments. Past projects have included: gardening at various sites around White Center, trash pick-up in White Center’s business district, graffiti removal, as well as painting murals throughout the neighborhood. WCCDA’s Spring Cleans brings in close to 300 volunteers for 20-25 projects each year.  If you have an idea or see a need in the White Center community for a Spring Clean project or if you’d like to volunteer and get involved in the community, register online at: TBD or contact Julia Bautista at Julia@wccda.org.

Sincerely,

wccda-dir-sig




Sili Savusa/Executive Director

From Cascade Bicycle Club:

In collaboration with King County Parks, White Center CDA, the YES Foundation and other community partners, Cascade Bicycle Club is building a traffic garden in Dick Thurnau Memorial Park. On January 14, 2016 from 5:30-7:30 PM we will hold a meeting to collect input on the proposed project from local residents. This meeting will be held at the TAF Bethaday Community Learning Space (605 SW 108th St, Seattle, WA 98146).


A traffic garden in Singapore.

A traffic garden in Singapore.


If you haven’t heard of a traffic garden, it is a simulated streetscape for youth and adults to practice bike handling and traffic safety, before challenging their skills on real roadways with motor traffic. Once the facility is built, Cascade will offer youth and adult bicycling programs at the traffic garden.

Please join us for this important meeting about our exciting new project and give feedback on design proposals! We will provide refreshments.
