Issaquah Community Services (ICS) helps families with emergency aid to prevent homelessness with rent assistance. It may help pay utility bills, bus tickets and other miscellaneous expenses. Payment is given on behalf of the client; cash is never given. Residents of the Issaquah School District are eligible. Volunteers listen to stories of clients and look for ways to help, sometimes with finances, or referrals, or a warm smile.
Mary lost her well-paying job in 2012 and was soon evicted from her apartment and eventually lost her household goods for failure to pay her storage bill. She turned to living with her 18 and 11-year-old sons in motels …. until her unemployment checks ran out. For a while, she relied on family, friends, churches and charities to help her pay the $50/night for a motel room for her family and all their belongings. Issaquah Community Services (ICS) joined others from the community to help her find housing and collect furnishings.
Make a difference!
Issaquah Community Services (ICS) is a 100% volunteer organization. It takes about 25 dedicated volunteers to train to meet with clients, to listen with a kind heart and to assist with finances when possible. You, too, can help – either with a tax deductible donation or as a volunteer.
