Family Services

Holiday Baskets program serves 512 families! 

Thanks to the collaborative efforts of Shoreline PTA Council, Dale Turner YMCA, City of Shoreline, Shoreline and Lake Forest Park Rotaries, Hopelink and the Shoreline Fire Department, we were able to provide holiday gift and food support to 512 families, which included 1199 children.  We appreciate all of the community support in the form of donations and volunteer time that helped make this program a success! We’ll see you next year. 

The WORKS provides clothing to Shoreline families!

​The WORKS clothing room provides high quality, clean, gently used children’s and teen clothing to Shoreline School District families. Shoreline families experiencing economic hardship can bring their children to “shop” for gently used, stylish clothing and receive new underwear, socks and hygiene products.

The WORKS is located at 18560 1st Avenue NE, on the north side of the Shoreline Center (closest crossroads NE 185th and 1st NE) and is open Wednesdays between 6:30-8:00pm. We look forward to seeing you!
