Founded in 1935 as a social organization, the Filipino Community of Seattle (FCS) has evolved into a not-for-profit social service charitable organization serving the Filipino and other communities in Greater Seattle and beyond. FCS is a 501(c)3 organization.
Today, more than 7,500 community members turn to FCS each month for food, educational support and mentorship, social interaction, counseling and support. We also play an important role as a cultural home for the Filipino Community as well as immigrants, refugees and others throughout the Greater Seattle area.
FCS owns and operates the Filipino Community Center (FCC) located on Martin Luther King Jr. Way S, Seattle, WA, where it provides its program services. It is currently in the middle of building the Filipino Community Village behind the FCC. The Village will provide affordable, low-income housing to seniors and house the Innovation Learning Center (ILC), which will focus on STEAM programming for youth.
