Peace for the Streets by Kids from the Streets
1609 19th Ave,  Seattle, WA 98112

Peace for the Streets by Kids from the Streets (PSKS) supports homeless and at-risk youth and young adults to lead positive and self-sufficient lives. We are the resource for young people experiencing homelessness up to age 29 on Capitol Hill, and we are often the last chance for a young person to avoid becoming chronically homeless as an adult.
Our frontline services are designed to invite youth off the streets by offering a welcoming and low-barrier environment, along with access to shelter, meals, free clothing, showers, and laundry. Low-barrier means we do not turn someone away for things like not having ID or having a pet companion. For the long-term, PSKS prioritizes growth opportunities such as involvement in advocacy, education, and employment support. We call our youth and young adults "participants" because they are active, engaged members of our organization and community.
On Thursday, September 14th from 5:30-8:30 PM PSKS is hosting a special fundraising event at the Tom Douglas Palace Ballroom. Join us for an evening filled with delicious food prepared by the Tom Douglas team, wine and other refreshments, a silent auction and fundraising for homeless youth and PSKS programs.
