We’re here to support youth and young adults with outreach, mentorship, and case management to help keep them alive and free.
Alive & Free serves youth and young adults, who are involved or impacted by groups/gangs, community violence or the justice system. We do this work through street outreach and case management in partnership with several cities and organizations across King County. We have a skilled team who specialize in engaging youth and young adults and have strong community ties. Our goal is to support our communities and help young people stay Alive & Free.
We meet young people where they're at. Using personal experience, strong ties to the local community, and extensive training, Alive & Free outreach workers go where youth are in the community.
Outreach workers support young people in identifying goals, such as engagement in education and employment, and overcoming the barriers to achieving these goals. In addition, they provide early intervention and are trained and expected to de-escalate conflict.
We work with a community coalition to provide wraparound services and eliminate risk factors, improve youths’ outcomes, and build healthier communities. If a youth is not engaging in referred services, the outreach worker plays a key role in involving the youth.
We’re here for you with counseling services that span mental health, substance use, and psychiatric care for people of all ages in King County.
There are opportunities to volunteer, donate supplies, host or foster a young person, and more.
With a shared commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, improving health and well-being, and supporting our neighbors, your membership will not just bring about meaningful change in yourself, but also in your community.
