This year proceeds from the Leo Party will aid both SCS and the Imperial Sovereign Court Of Seattle. SCS has been providing the Seattle LGBTQ community with culturally competent behavioral health services for 48 years. We believe that a person’s ability to pay should not prevent them from receiving the care they clinically require. Fund raised at the Leo Party will contribute to the continuity of care we offer. Please come and join us for an evening of fun, laughter, and comradery as we raise funds to benefit the health and welness of the LGBTQ community.
Tickets are now available online at a discounted pre-event rate of $14.00 for general admission and $38 VIP tickets. VIP tickets include a performer meet and greet, buffet style dinner and surprise gift. Tickets can be purchased online through Stranger Tickets (linked here) or through the Seattle Counseling Service website here.
SCS Spotlight on The Art Craft Lab
SCS hosts the Art Craft Lab every Monday evening between 5 and 7pm. We offer a non-judgmental and safe space in which SCS clients can explore their creativity. The Lab is a low-stress environment that invites participants to share, at their comfort level, what their art craft means to them, and to use the making of their art craft as another way to grow self-awareness. Art becomes the vehicle to self-explore and create social relationships. Participants don’t have to be an SCS client to attend. Non- friends are welcomed! The Art Craft Lab is facilitated by SCS therapists with backgrounds and/or credentialing in art therapy. Each meeting has a therapist present to ease the discussion, guide exploration, and provide technical support. Participants often help set the format -- sometimes it is a structured art workshop with participants all working under a uniting theme; other times it is a self-directed journey. For more information on the Lab, contact Shelby at 206.323.1768, ext. 137.
