Directory Of Seattle Nonprofit Organizations

I created this list of Seattle nonprofit organizations as a service of VocationVillage.com. While many of these organizations offer multiple programs so they could correctly be listed in several categories, for the sake of brevity, I chose ONE category for each one, so please carefully review the list if you are interested in a particular type of Seattle nonprofit.
