On the left above is John Hannahs, Branch Manager for US Bank in White Center; on the right is Dusty Bailey, US Bank Downtown Seattle District Manager, presenting one of those really cool over-sized checks (for $5,000!) to Rudy Garza, Navos Drug-Free Youth Coalition Coordinator.
The presentation happened Wednesday afternoon at the Navos campus in Burien (1210 SW 136th Street), just after a training session for members of the coalition from throughout the state on Positive Community Norms.
Last July, Navos received a King County grant to create a community-based coalition for drug free youth in the Burien/White Center communities, with Garza hired to lead it.
“Navos has been responding to the needs of people with mental illness in King County for over 40-years,” reads an announcement. “Its services are targeted to those who live at or near poverty, often as a result of their mental illness. The mission of Navos is to improve the quality of life of people vulnerable to mental illness by providing a broad continuum of care.”
