Merry Christmas Issaquah 2016  has goal of $100,000

Thank you, thank you for all the donations. As of the new year we have received $77,422.00.  

These funds will help to keep the heat on for familes or an elderly person.  ICS helps with rent for the working couple whose hours get cut, or the single parent who had a medical emergency.   It may help a young couple get on their feet after returning to town with help from the relatives who helped all they could.  It may provide bus tickets for a homeless person to Seattle for a medical appointment. These are real situations faced by people living in Issaquah School district.  Thanks for helping make a small difference.  All life matters. Donations still gratefully accepted, Please write a check, or contribute online.

Emergency
Financial Aid

Issaquah Community Services (ICS) provides emergency aid to residents of the Issaquah School District in the form of utility payments, rent assistance, bus tickets and other miscellaneous expenses depending on specific need and the emergency. Payment is given on behalf of the client; cash is never given. Referrals to other agencies, a listening ear and warm smile are always offered.

Client Stories

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.
