Hopelink is a community action agency that has served homeless and low-income families, children, seniors and people with disabilities since 1971. The agency has five multi-purpose service centers, and five housing sites throughout north and east King County. The service centers are equipped with food banks, and a staff of specialists offering various support programs, such as family development, adult education, employment training, home heating assistance and more. Hopelink’s integrated service centers, housing and transportation programs assist more than 60,000 community members each year. This service, to clients and the community, is based upon Hopelink’s Theory of Change, which recognizes the importance of providing stability to those in crisis, and then equipping clients to exit poverty on a permanent basis.
