[ARCHIVED] Snoqualmie City Council Approves Human Services Funding for 2021-2022

This is an image of hands reaching toward the words human services.

 The Snoqualmie City Council has approved $226,287 for human services funding in 2021 and $238,287 in 2022, which represents approximately 1.3% of the City of Snoqualmie general fund.

The city does not employ human services staff. Instead, it funds human services through service agreements with local nonprofits to assist individuals and families in need. The human services budget is distributed among organizations that address the city’s funding priorities:

  1. Food to Eat and a Roof Overhead
  2. Supporting and Preparing Youth for Success
  3. A Safe Haven from Violence and Abuse
  4. Physical and Mental Wellness; and Healthy Aging

“I am very grateful for the inspiring and selfless work that our human services organizations are doing in the community,” said Mayor Matt Larson. “Adequately funding human services programs has always been a priority for the City of Snoqualmie, and the need for assistance has only increased during the pandemic. I am very proud that our community constantly endeavors to care for its most vulnerable residents.”

The organizations that will receive human services funding in 2021-2022 include:
 

  • CarePoint Clinic
  • Eastside Baby Corner
  • Encompass
  • Friends of Youth
  • Helping Hands Ministry
  • LifeWire
  • Mamma’s Hands
  • Mt. Si Senior Center
  • Si View Community Foundation
  • Snoqualmie Valley Community Network
