Snoqualmie Allocates Funding to Human Services Organizations

Human Services

As part of the City’s biennial budget, the City Council approved $588,945 in Human Services funding, which will benefit Snoqualmie Valley children, seniors, individuals, and families in need. The City will allocate these funds in 2023-2024 to organizations that provide aid for food, shelter, clothing, counseling, and safety throughout the community.

The City of Snoqualmie does not have a Human Services Department, so the City relies on service agreements with community organizations to provide human services to residents. While 1% of the City’s general fund is dedicated to health and human services, the City of Snoqualmie often exceeds this amount. “Attending to the health, safety, and welfare of our residents is one of our core values,” said Snoqualmie Mayor Katherine Ross. “We are pleased to have many strong partners in the community who can assist us in effectively meeting this need.” 

The City accepts applications for funds, which are allocated based on a competitive review process with the Human Services Advisory Committee. This volunteer committee consists of three Snoqualmie residents who work with staff to identify and prioritize funding needs, administer the application process, recommend budget allocations to the City Council, and review accountability reports from organizations to ensure efficient use of City funds. Funding priorities include: food to eat and a roof overhead; supporting and preparing youth for success; a safe haven from violence and abuse; and physical and mental wellness, including healthy aging. 

The following organizations will receive funding in 2023-2024:

CarePoint Clinic 

Eastside Baby Corner

Empower Youth Network

Encompass

Friends of Youth

Helping Hands Ministry 

Mamma’s Hands

Mt. Si Senior Center

Si View Community Foundation

Snoqualmie Valley Food Bank 

Snoqualmie Valley Shelter Services

Society of St. Vincent de Paul 

The Trail Youth
