Who We Are

Together Center creates access to human services, so people can find help when the need it. Tens of thousands of people from throughout East King County seek services at Together Center, a regional facility. One of the first multi-tenant nonprofit centers in the nation, Together Center works collaboratively to improve efficiencies and to lower barriers to finding help.  We build partnerships to meet gaps in services and provide information, referral and other assistance to ensure all people can find help when they need it. Here people find help and services at 20+ essential human service agencies and other critical resources. Our inclusive campus is designed to improve housing stability, promote personal agency, elevate health equity, and deliver essential whole-person support across our community.

Mission

Together Center makes lives better by helping people find the assistance they need. We do this by co-locating a large array of programs on one campus and connecting people to these and other resources. We build a collaborative and knowledgeable association of service providers working together to empower people and our communities.

Vision

We envision a healthy, housed and thriving community where people are easily able to access multiple compassionate support services on one campus.
