Financial Aid

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.

Client Stories

In April 2018, Kristen* came with her high school daughter to ICS office.  They had come from an abusive situation in an east coast state. Our volunteer inquired, what brought you such a far way west? She said her sister invited them because she had a affordable 3 bedroom apartment in Seattle, Yesler area. Shortly after they arrived, her sister’s building was the scheduled for renovation.  To replace her own lodging her sister could barely afford a single bedroom, so there was no room for Kristen and her daughter.  After sometime in a shelter Kristen, who has a full time night job, was able to get into local housing. Working to get enough funds she was short the damage deposit.Thanks to our generous donors we were able to help them get into a home of their own, finally.
