Welcome to Brave Commitments.

Can you imagine our community without agencies that support children, youth and families?  All around King County, and throughout the State of Washington, we depend on nonprofit organizations to serve unmet needs: safe places, after-school programs, counseling, food security, housing stability, behavioral health, foster care enhancements, youth development and mentoring.
