SMC in the Community

Community Outreach Events

SMC brings our court services along with supportive social services and resources from our Community Resource Center to Seattle neighborhoods. Past events have been held at the Yesler Community Center, Rainier Beach Community Center, Lake City Community Center, Delridge Community Center, Garfield Community Center and Rainier Community Center. 

These outreach events are an opportunity for community members to receive assistance with resolving Seattle Municipal Court warrants, learn about options for addressing Seattle and King County tickets by setting up a payment plan or community service plan, get help with regaining their driver's license, and access supportive services through the Community Resource Center. Court staff are present to answer questions about court processes, schedule hearings, and provide information on resources and programs available through the court.

Our 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.
