Invest in Community by Bringing Social Housing to Seattle

Y-WE strives to create a safe space for young people and adults as we learn, grow, and thrive in community. Our community is struggling to make ends meet, which inhibits the ability to thrive. We support the I-135 ballot initiative that will provide critical social housing across Seattle.

We are taking a break! Y-WE will be closed 12/17-1/8

We are proud to announce that we are living out our values by centering joy and deep rest this winter. This is the second year we will be taking a wellness break, and we are grateful for our community who supports us in feeling empowered to do so.

A New Era of Y-WE

We are excited to launch our newest video highlighting how Y-WE is transforming from within! We have recently moved into a new space in Hillman City, and our new Co-Executive Director team is stepping into their leadership together. Alongside our young people, we are also becoming more of who we are as we enter this new era of Y-WE.
