About the Event

SMC brings our court services along with supportive social services and resources from our Community Resource Center to Seattle neighborhoods. 

These outreach events were suspended in 2020 due to the pandemic. Our last event at Rainier Community Center event held in October 2019 included 19 service providers and 30 court staff and volunteers. 400 community members received a variety of services at the event including resolving warrants and unpaid tickets, relicensing, accessing health care and employment resources, and more.
