A Supportive Community For All (SCFA) is a collaborative project that strengthens community connections to make human services more accessible in the Snoqualmie Valley. This project is led by a Partner Team comprised of representatives from Hopelink, Encompass, Mt Si Senior Center, Snoqualmie Valley Food Bank, and the Snoqualmie Valley Community Network.
In 2018-2019, a diverse group of community members, selected by the Partner Team, served on a work group that used an adaptive leadership model to guide process and goal setting for collaboration. Following completion and review of a comprehensive needs assessment, the collective decision was made to design and launch multiple interventions intended to weave a tighter safety net for community members in need of support. This program will continue to be funded by King County Communities of Opportunity through December 2021.
Key components of SCFA’s work looking ahead will be to (1) launch a community resources navigator program, (2) develop a communications plan intended to raise awareness of community resources and reduce stigma of seeking help, and (3) complete a feasibility study to determine whether to establish multi-service centers in the community.
