What is the Allen Family Center?


The Allen Family Center is a one-stop shop for family support and services, located at 3190 Martin Luther King Jr Way S, Seattle, WA 98144, and open 8 AM – 5 PM, Monday-Friday.

A shared project between Mercy Housing Northwest, the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation, and the City of Seattle, the Allen Family Center was created to be a resource hub for families – particularly those facing homelessness or other crises.
