9th Annual “Seattle Stand Down” to Assist Homeless Veterans @ South Seattle College--Georgetown Campus
Dec 12 @ 7:00 am – 4:00 pm

Homeless and at-risk Veterans and their families are invited to attend The Ninth Annual Seattle Stand Down–a two-day, one-stop shop for resources and services available to Veterans who currently lack permanent housing or simply need a “hand up” in order to prevent homelessness. (This event is hosted by The Seattle Stand Down, a volunteer team of veterans dedicated to supporting veterans experiencing homelessness.)

Representatives from local businesses, non-profits, educational institutions, and all levels of government will be there with volunteers to provide medical screenings, eye exams, dental services, legal aid, employment opportunities, housing assistance, case management referrals, haircuts, personal hygiene items, and meals.

Providers offering services specifically for women Veterans, including health care, advocacy, counseling, employment, and personal care, will also be on site.

Services and resources will be provided at several locations throughout the South Seattle College Georgetown Campus, including the Gene Colin Education Hall–Building C. Parking passes will be made available to veterans receiving services. For more information about transportation, see The Seattle Stand Down Transportation page.

Participants should check in at the Gene Colin Education Hall–Building C. For directions, see the Georgetown Campus Map.

On December 12, registration begins at 7:00 a.m., and services will be available from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. that day.

On December 13, registration begins at 7:00 a.m., and services will be available from 8:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. that day.

For both days of the event, King County Metro and Sound Transit will provide free rides for all veterans. Veterans must carry one type of four accepted forms of government ID, or the special bus pass Metro has printed for veterans who lack identification (available at local social service providers). This means that veterans with any one of the ID forms listed below can travel on any Metro bus, Sound Transit bus, the LINK light rail, and the Sounder train.

Forms of identification accepted:

  • Veteran Health Identification (ID) Card
  • Uniformed Identification (ID) Card
  • Veteran designation on driver’s license
  • DD-214
  • Special Stand Down bus pass provided by local social service providers.  Visit The Seattle Stand Down Transportation page for pickup locations.

Tinkergarten Free Trial @ Lincoln Park
Jan 14 @ 10:00 am – 10:50 am

At Tinkergarten, families meet outdoors to connect and learn through play. In this free trial class, Tinkergarten Leader, Alison Arnote, will facilitate an expert-designed play scenario, allowing children of various ages and needs to explore, problem solve, communicate, collaborate, and create together. Parents and caregivers learn, too, as we share insight into your child’s development.

This trial class is:

  • Designed for children ages 18 months-8 years. Child/children are accompanied by an adult. Siblings of any other age are most welcome.
  • Limited to the first 15 families who register.

Kids may get a bit messy (Hurrah!), so please send them in clothing that can get dirty.

We start the class at the specified location but may end within a reasonable walk from that location.

This trial class is free.
