  • Community of Focus: Springbrook

    Help share Springbrook’s story!

    You are the experts on your community. What matters to you may make a difference in your community’s health.  

    The Nisqually and Steilacoom people were the first to live in the area now called Springbrook. 

    Springbrook’s growth over the years came at the cost of these first people losing this land.

    About 4,500 people live in Springbrook.

    It is a vibrant, multicultural community. Many families rent their homes. Some homeowners are working through adversity to keep their homes.

    Many groups make Springbrook a great place to live. 

    Springbrook Connections and Lorene’s Place II host programs that help families. They also create a space for community members to come together.

    • Lorene’s Place II: (253) 531-3462.
