CityStream: Preserving a Preschool & Boosting Business
CityStream: Preserving a Preschool & Boosting Business

The Refugee and Immigrant Family Center (RIFC) is a cherished West Seattle preschool and childcare facility. Recently, the building's landlord decided to sell. That news came as a shock to the 45 families and staff of the center, setting off a desperate search for help. It came thanks to a special anti-displacement program run by the city! A different city initiative is helping small businesses thrive. The "Only in Seattle" program will increase marketing efforts for shop owners in 17 Seattle neighborhoods. Host Tatevik Aprikyan has these stories, plus a look at the Big Day of Play from the Rainier Community Center.
