- During the intergenerational hours of operation, 3rd grade students and below MUST always be accompanied by an adult and should NOT be left unattended while visiting the Family First Community Center – unless being dropped off at a specific program.
- In that case, please walk your child in and make sure they are with their program director before leaving. We ask that you pick them up promptly once their program ends or join them in the building.
- 4th and 5th grade students are welcome in the building with a family member (that is in the 6th grade or older) or an adult.
- The family member or adult must remain in the building. 4th and 5th grade students may NOT be dropped off.
- ALL guests joining us at FFCC will have to register and complete a liability waiver upon their first visit. Every time guests visit, they must check-in at the front desk using our registration software system. This will allow us to gather data and understand who is using the facility, how they are using the facility and our services and what times the building is utilized the most.
- We follow the Renton School District calendar year and will have reduced hours of 10:00am-6:00pm during the Winter Break, Mid-Winter Break, Spring Break and Summer Break.

Community Meeting Room
Like many spaces in this facility, the Community Meeting Room will serve as a multifunctional area. Some key amenities to note about this space is the demonstration kitchen, state-of-the-art audio (JBL speakers) and visual system, and the sliding wall that allows the kitchen to be closed off from the remainder of the room. Some ideas this space could be used for are cooking classes, general meetings, and future rentals.
This Demo Kitchen is connected to the community meeting room. This space includes two ovens, a dishwasher, a fridge, and a gas stove that requires special appliances. Potential programs and activities that could be activated in this space are culinary classes, communal food gatherings where we could share food from our diverse cultures and plenty more! The demo kitchen could be closed off from the community meeting room if needed.
The Activities Lounge will be open to people of all ages during the designated group times. This space is meant to be multifunctional, with a balance of fun and academics. Some features that will be a part of this space is a couch,TV’s, computers, video games, arts & craft materials, books, pingpong/pool/air hockey table.
The Dance Studio has beautiful finishes such as long mirrors, JBL speakers, and ballet barres. These features will create a welcoming environment for potential programming that can include Yoga, Zumba, Ballet, Martial Arts, and other dance/exercise classes.
This Fitness Room will have the essential pieces of equipment you need to get a good workout in such as a mixture of cardio, free weights, and dumbbells. People 18 years and older will be able to use the free weights without supervision during designated times, but supervision from an adult is required for teenagers 16-17 years old. Middle school students will not be able to use the free weights, only the machines. A separate liability waiver will be required for youth in order to use this space.
The Gymnasium is at the end of the runway, clearly the biggest space in the whole facility. Everything about the gym is intentional, like most of the community center. From the JBL sound system, to the sloped fencing located on-top of the equipment storages (so balls that make there way up could easily come back down), or the lines on the court in Family First logo colors. These impressive details will allow this place to be multi-functional for sports and other larger gathering events such as basketball, volleyball, conferences, and even movie nights.
HealthPoint is a nonprofit community health center dedicated to high-quality care. They’re your one-stop resource for medical, dental, pharmacy, and behavioral health. Their mission is to, “strengthen communities and improve people’s health by delivering quality health care services, breaking down barriers, and providing access to all.” Healthpoint is an appointment only clinic that will not deny care to anyone for the services they provide. Their CSR’s will help people with available resources, like applying for insurance and other things they qualify for.
The Makerspace belongs to the Renton School District. During the school year/hours, students from Cascade Elementary will be using this space to get hands on exposure in the field of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics (STEAM). This room can be converted into two spaces because of the sliding wall. In addition, it will include 3-D printers, Promethean boards, among other items.
