The branch includes 11 classrooms (observable through one-way glass), collaborative research rooms and a library resource area
Eli Creekmore Memorial Branch
Opened in 1987, the Eli Creekmore Memorial Branch is located in the south part of Seattle near the city of Burien. It is named in remembrance of 4-year-old Matthew Eli Creekmore of Everett.
The furor over the little boy’s death by horrific abuse at the hands of his father helped spur broad improvements in the state’s oversight of child abuse cases.
Patrick L. Gogerty Branch
Opened in 1992 as Childhaven’s second center, the Patrick L. Gogerty Branch serves approximately 98 children in the South King County area. The building is named in honor of Childhaven’s modern-day founder and former executive director Patrick Gogerty, whose own abusive childhood inspired him to shift Seattle Day Nursery’s day care focus toward the care of the youngest victims of abuse and neglect.
Art with Heart
For over 20 years, Art with Heat has spread the healing power of creative expression to kids, families, and communities.

Our partners use our resources nationwide in schools, hospitals, after-school programs, national nonprofit camps, and community-based organizations. Art with Heart has reached more than 200,000 kids and 4,000 adults since its inception in 1996.
RAYS Downtown Renton
Since 1970, RAYS has been the trusted place for youth and their families who need support to triumph over life’s challenges and to grow a happy and healthy future. In 1984 RAYS relocated into the Renton Area Multi Service Center in downtown Renton, a registered historic site.
RAYS – Cynthia A. Green Family Center
In January 2018, RAYS opened an integrated primary care and behavioral health clinic at the Family Center in partnership with HealthPoint. There has long been a need for health services on West Hill and this clinic is the result of years of research and advocacy in collaboration with the community. We are honored to work with HealthPoint to deliver a holistic approach to client care.
