Center for Human Services cuts programs and staff

Friday, June 25, 2010

Due to projected decrease in revenue for July 2010 - June 2011, the Center for Human Services has made deep cuts to early childhood and youth development programming provided at the Shoreline and Northshore Family Centers. Starting in September 2010, CHS will provide 9 Play and Learn groups and 3 youth development groups. This is a 30% reduction of Play and Learn service hours and people served, and a 60% reduction of service hours and people served by youth programs.

In June 2010, when faced with a projected Family Support department deficit of $162,061, CHS leadership was forced to decrease services.  Three employees in the Family Support department will be laid off and 4 other employees will have their hours reduced. 

Families will have less access to services, however, CHS is confident that they will be able to continue to provide quality programs to families in a fiscally responsible manner while sustaining core service.

The vision remains the same: to provide high quality early learning, youth development and adult education and support to families in our community.

CHS is located in North City, 17018 15th Avenue NE, Shoreline 98155.  It serves families in King and Snohomish county with four core programs:
