Welcome to the website of the Greater Seattle Service League! We are a group of mid-century women (last century, not this one!) who have combined our long-standing friendship with our passion for life-long learning and community service.

For over thirty years, we have been working together to support Childhaven, a King County nonprofit organization that serves children between the ages of one month and five years who have been abused or neglected, or are at risk.

From our September 9, 2012 Fun Walk for Childhaven.

 

CHILDHAVEN ANNUAL CELEBRATION LUNCHEON

March 2, 2016

The Greater Seattle Service League’s (GSSL) main fundraising effort is to support the annual Childhaven Celebration Luncheon at the Washington State Convention Center. 

This year’s inspirational keynote speakers were NANCY THOMAS and her daughter, BETH THOMAS. Nancy is a Therapeutic Parenting Specialist and author specializing in Reactive Attachment Disorder, whose quest is to give each wounded child a chance at a happy life and each wounded parent hope. Her adopted daughter, Beth, a victim of childhood abuse, was featured in the 1999 HBO documentary Child of Rage. Beth is now an award winning registered nurse. Together, they shared their story of recovery and empowerment.

This year’s luncheon raised $371,412 to help Childhaven improve the lives of at-risk children.
