Families of Color Seattle opens community gathering space Cornerstone Café
Families of Color Seattle, a local nonprofit that serves as a resource to help build strong and loving multicultural families, is opening a new community-based gathering space for families in South Seattle.
Cornerstone Café will be housed in The Hillman City Collaboratory, a co-share work and community space, and will offer a variety of resources to support and empower Seattle’s diverse families. Cornerstone Café will provide a creative blend of family programming with arts and culture, as well as multilingual classes for children and parents. There will be a community café, drop-in childcare, evening forums, workshops and experiential learning and outdoor play in the 4,000-square-foot community garden.
“Cornerstone Café is a crucial goal of Families of Color Seattle,” said Amy Pak, the organization’s founder. “Our talented team of parents, consultants and community members have been working hard the past year to organize and actualize the FOCS vision to serve diverse Seattle families, build a loving community and connect new parents.”
Families of Color Seattle is seeking public support and donations through an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to operate and help provide the intended programming for the Cornerstone Café. The organization’s goal is to raise $25,000. Visit indiegogo.com/projects/families-of-color-seattle to donate, or to learn more.
The Cornerstone Café is located at 5623 Rainier Ave. S. in Seattle. It will officially open its doors to the public on Monday, Oct. 20. For more information, visit focseattle.com.
