Urban Family was founded by Paul and Shantel Patu who are recognized in the Greater Seattle area as premier intervention specialists and youth advocates. They have frequently been called upon by civic and community leaders to help stabilize neighborhoods under duress, and have mitigated the influence of 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.
We believe all women can embrace who they are,
can define their future, and can change the world.
