 Southeast Seattle service providers Aki Kurose Middle School staff

have launched the SE Seattle P.E.A.C.E. Coalition (Prevention Education and Action for Community Empowerment) to ensure kids are safe, healthy, and happy so they can learn.  The Coalition brings together all sectors of the community, including parents, students, business owners and religious leaders. 



The P.E.A.C.E. Coalition plans and implements alcohol and other drug prevention services in Southeast Seattle, with a special focus on Aki Kurose Middle School. 

The Coalition is one of 52 communities statewide participating in the Community Prevention and Wellness Initiative (CPWI), funded by the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services’ Division of Behavioral Health and Recovery. King County Department of Community and Human Services’ Mental Health, Chemical Abuse and Dependency Services Division awarded Neighborhood House a five-year CPWI grant to develop the coalition and implement community prevention strategies that will lead to a positive effect on youth, families and communities in SE Seattle. The King County Alcohol and Other Drug Prevention Program provides oversight and support of this grant.
