Settled in Seattle

For more than 113,000 foreign-born residents, Seattle is a place of opportunity, hope, and sanctuary. In our corner of the city, you’ll find them advocating for local youth, playing key roles in local business and activism, and even bringing a taste of their homeland to the neighborhood. These stories began across the globe, but all share a common thread—a community found in South Lake Union.
