With support from King County Communities of Opportunity, SCFA was launched in 2017 with a mission to build an inclusive coalition of community partners to strengthen community connections and coordinate human services across the Snoqualmie Valley. This includes folks in North Bend, Snoqualmie, Fall City, Preston, Carnation, and Duvall, and the surrounding unincorporated areas.
