Multi-Service Center

How We Help

Multi-Service Center offers integrated support and resources that help individuals and families move from crisis and poverty to greater self-sufficiency.

Stabilized Housing

Stable housing is central to self-reliance. Multi-Service Center offers family shelter, transitional housing for individuals and families, permanent-supportive housing and permanent low-income housing. Preventing homelessness is key to our program. We offer rent assistance for several South King County cities. Learn more here.

Educational Programs

Education is critical to building strong, stable futures. Youth and adults can earn their General Education Development (GED) certificate, as well as learn English as a Second Language, through small-sized classes and one-on-one tutoring. For adults who need help with literacy and other basics, our Adult Basic Education program is tailored to each student’s specific need. Learn more here.

Employment Assistance

Job skills training, leadership development, career exploration and job search skills are offered for both youth and adults. At-risk youth may also qualify for paid internships in local organizations and businesses to help them build on-the-job skills to prepare them for more promising futures. Learn more here.

Energy Assistance

We help to keep the heat on for families and individuals. Last year, 10,624 households representing 34,120 people received one-time assistance with their heating bills to get them past a financially difficult time. Learn more here.

Food Bank

When people need help to keep their families fed, they turn to MSC’s Federal Way Food Bank. More than 16,000 individuals used the food bank last year for supplemental and emergency food. Learn more here.
