Shoreline is served by multiple public and private organizations that provide a wide range of activities for youth and adults to promote and support healthy lifestyle choices. The City works to mobilize, promote and expand the impact these groups have in Shoreline.
Spotlight partner efforts:
Public Health: Seattle and King County encourages healthy behaviors through regulations and public information, including the wearing of bicycle helmets, the labeling of caloric information at chain-food restaurants and the cessation of tobacco use.
The Dale Turner Family Y, in partnership with the City, Shoreline Public Schools, and local churches, offers a Summer Lunch Program for school age youth.
The Center for Human Services, with City funding, provides classes and counseling to reduce tobacco use and substance abuse.
Future efforts include:
Increase the impact in Shoreline of the Let's Do This wellness campaign.
Promote local human service agencies' initiative, "Nourishing Networks," to ensure that no one in Shoreline lacks the nourishment they need to lead healthy lives.
Partner with Shoreline Neighborhood Associations to conduct neighborhood events and activities focused on healthy choices.
