Our Mission

The mission of the Ethiopian Community in Seattle is to cultivate a healthy, thriving Ethiopian and East African community by providing services that improve the well-being of its members and inspire successful, resilient assimilation into the Seattle area and beyond. With a focus on education, health, and housing, the organization assists the community in navigating the complex web of social services. Long-term programs and advocacy empower members by addressing the root causes of problems that limit their economic and social progress.

Our Vision

ECS envisions a vibrant and active Ethiopian Community in the Puget Sound area. Our aim is to preserve our rich Ethiopian heritage and to ensure that all members are actively involved and share mutual respect.
