Urban Family


  • Urban Family
  • Mission – Urban Family was founded by Paul and Shantel Patu who are recognized in the Greater Seattle area as youth and family intervention experts, and community leaders. They have frequently been called upon by civic and community leaders to help stabilize neighborhoods under duress, and have mitigated the influence of systemic poverty, oppression, gangs and youth violence by providing grassroots and collaborative leadership, intervention programs, training, and consultation. Their innovative approach to problem-solving has helped many youths and their families to make life-changing decisions.
