HomeFamilies and IndividualsFamily CentersEast King County Family Center
The East King County Family Center was established in 1986 at St. Louise Parish in Bellevue. The local community was concerned with the increase in needy hungry children waiting for the bread truck to arrive at a local center, homeless families living in their cars and in tents, and couples needing marriage preparation. In partnership with local churches, CCS brought the community together to address local issues and to respond to the most critical needs.
The center is committed to serving those most in need, and to changing systems that cause discrimination, suffering and oppression due to age, race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation or religious beliefs. Our service philosophy calls for individualized, tailored care, because every person comes to us with a different background, a different need. We build on people’s strengths, rather than on problems or failures, and we do that best by integrating all of the services available in the community in which they live. We encourage self-sufficiency every day by providing people with the tools they need to help themselves, whether they need counseling, housing, chore services, or parenting skills.
Volunteers are key to the success of our programs. Volunteers from all walks of life make a difference by helping those most in need in our community. Last year 4,429 volunteers, individuals just like you provided more than 21,000 volunteer hours in services.
