Keeping Neighbors In Their Homes

What We Do

At Issaquah Community Services, we seek to uplift and strengthen our local community by providing emergency financial aid for rent and utilities to individuals and families facing temporary hardship. We are dedicated to fostering stability, dignity, and hope by addressing the immediate needs of our neighbors so they can have a secure environment in which to thrive. 

For more than 50 years, we have served this area as an all-volunteer non-profit organization. Our assistance is available to residents of Issaquah, much of Sammamish and Newcastle, and parts of Renton, Bellevue and Maple Valley.  Through compassionate outreach, collaboration, and locally-focused fund-raising, we strive to bolster the economic stability of our community, one household at a time.  

You Can Help

  Imagine a community where no family has to face the fear of eviction or utility shutoff due to temporary financial hardship.

You have the power to turn this vision into a reality by donating today to our Neighbors Helping Neighbors annual campaign.

We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit that relies on your donations to continue our mission. We have set our sights this year on a $200,000 goal so that together we can continue to sustain a community where Neighbors Help Neighbors remain housed. Your donation, no matter the size, can make a lasting impact.
