Every year, CHEER Seattle selects a local non-profit that shares our philosophy of health & wellness. Throughout the season, CHEER Seattle participates in various events that help raise funds and strongly relies on generous donations from our patrons.
POCAAN is committed to providing comprehensive, multicultural awareness and prevention programs aimed at addressing health disparities experienced in marginalized communities.
Established in 1987, POCAAN is a multicultural, multi-social service agency serving marginalized communities in Seattle and greater King County including Latino, Black, Asian/Pacific Islander, and Native Americans. For many years their work has been rooted in HIV/AIDS prevention, but it has grown with the understanding that related issues such as substance abuse, incarceration, homelessness, sexually transmitted diseases, racism, sexism, and homophobia also contribute to community marginalization and health disparities.
