A needs assessment in 2010 identified the Casino Road neighborhood as the area in Snohomish County with the “greatest level of poverty across the age spectrum.”

The center provides a range of services, including a Minority Achievers Program and Code Teen, programs that assist youth with homework and exposure to college and career opportunities. For information on how you can help, call 425-518-8050.
