Comparing DSHS Service Use in King County’s White Center Area with Rates in Nearby Communities: 2001 to 2007

In 2001, residents of King County’s White Center and nearby communities were involved in a conversation with government, businesses and local leadership about how their communities need to change. A look at the extent to which DSHS services are used by residents in 2007 shows where the communities stand relative to 2001. The White Center community experienced a modest increase in its rate of using DSHS services between 2001 and 2007. In contrast, the DSHS service use rates increased more dramatically in the nearby communities of Boulevard Park, Burien and SeaTac. Although the DSHS service use rate among adults in White Center increased somewhat, the service use rate among youth in this community actually declined.
