By Cara · February 26th, 2015 · No Comments

Crisis Clinic, a non-profit organization based in Seattle that “connects people in physical, emotional and financial crisis to services that will be of help” is seeking volunteers for several programs. Since 1964 when community members came together to provide support for those in crisis, Crisis Clinic has grown and evolved to serve youth and adults in Seattle-King County, WA including King County 2-1-1.
