Accomplishments

dot_red.gif Effective programming that utilizes evidence-based and promising practices, a strengths-

based approach incorporating the 40 Developmental Assets involving the entire family, and

providing a culturally appropriate, supportive environment for youth

dot_red.gif 350 youth and families are annually served by SFYC services

dot_red.gif From 2000-2007, over 775 youth have been served by case management services

dot_red.gif Academic and award attainments by current and former youth have established higher

standards for SFYC youth i.e. ivy-league university admission and community excellence

awards

dot_red.gif In 2007, 92% of eligible youth graduated high school or obtained their GED

dot_red.gif Since 2003, the percent of eligible youth who graduated high school or obtained their GED

has remained above 85%

Evaluations:

dot_red.gif In 2001, the National SafeFutures' evaluation of our gang intervention model demonstrated

that SFYC was successful in ten of eleven key outcome areas, such as in reduction in gang

crimes, educational attainment, increase in protective or resiliency factors, etc.

dot_red.gif An evaluation of our Promoting Assets Across Cultures program showed an increase in

healthy youth and family relationships

dot_red.gif In 2001, SFYC's replicated model, New Start Center, demonstrated through a Juvenile

Justice Evaluation that New Start was successful in reducing the number of criminal and

felony referrals to the juvenile justice system, the number of detention admissions and

length of stay in detention

dot_red.gif SFYC underwent an evaluation of its Comprehensive Family Model through

Reinvesting in Youth. The evaluation is expected to more conclusively demonstrate SFYC's

program effectiveness, provide basis for expanded funding and replication, and provide

feedback to improve service delivery. It also provides a Cultural Competency Assessment

Report and Action Plan Report. Safe Futures has achieved broad funding support, from City of Seattle and

King County governments, United Way, several foundations, charitable trusts and other donations.

Agency successes include providing services to youth and families so that several have gone on to college

and are working in middle class jobs. Several youth who received services from Safe Futures have

returned to the agency to become mentors to other youth or are involved in the community in leadership roles.
