SafeFutures empowers and advocates for under-served young people from low-income communities and communities of color to maximize their potential. Our young people emerge confident, resourceful, engaged community members with the tools and support to navigate their futures. SafeFutures provides leadership by engaging under-served youth and their families through culturally responsive academic, prevention, and intervention services in their communities.


SafeFutures Youth Center was founded in 1996 as a City of Seattle Human Services Department-operated program targeting at-risk Southeast Asian youth and families. SafeFutures became a non-profit organization in June 1999, received IRS 501c3 status, and expanded our services to better serve a broader community, including East African, African American, Native American/Alaskan Native, Latino, Pacific Islander, and other populations.
