Historical NoteReturn to Top

An Office of Human Resources was established in 1971 in the Executive Department to develop, implement, and manage social services for low-income and disadvantaged residents of Seattle. In 1973 it was replaced by the Department of Human Resources. DHR administered family and youth services programs, senior citizen services, community service activities, the Seattle Veterans Action Center, and the Comprehensive Residential Weatherization Program. Federal, state, and local grants comprised two-thirds of the department's operating budget. Passage of the 1986 Low Income Housing Levy increased the City's funding and policy role in housing issues. In 1991, the agency name was changed to the Department of Human Services. A year later, the Department of Housing and Human Services was created, incorporating the City housing programs and Community Development Block Grant administration from the recently abolished Department of Community Development. DHHS programs included aging services, family and youth services, housing and community services, human services, and the City's education office. In 1999, the Office of Housing was established as an independent agency and DHHS was reorganized as the Human Services Department.

Content DescriptionReturn to Top

Correspondence, reports, agreements, and grant proposals for a federally funded project to develop a system for integrating homeless children into community based child care centers. Also includes Planning/Advisory Group minutes, correspondence, rosters and related material, as well as notes, testimony and draft bills regarding legislation to provide State funding for homeless child care. The project provided 3,256 days of child care for homeless children in two community sites in 1990 and in 1991 mobilized a state-wide coalition that successfully lobbied the state Legislature for over one million dollars for homeless child care. The Department contracted with a non-governmental social service agency to continue network services following completion of the federal grant.
