Financial Help

Emergency rental assistance, bus fare to get to a job interview: Hopelink can help with needs that often fall through the cracks of other available assistance.

Rent
Our Eviction Prevention program can help a family stay in their home in times of financial crisis by providing a portion of the funds required. And our First Month’s Rent program is there to support families who are getting back on their feet, assisting with a portion of the high costs of setting up a new home.  To apply for assistance, contact the Hopelink center nearest you.

Emergency Financial Assistance
On a case-by-case basis, Hopelink can often help with those costs which might make the difference between a family going hungry or homeless, and the family surviving.  To apply for assistance, contact the Hopelink center nearest you.

All Hopelink sites serve as community resources, providing information and referrals to thousands seeking help with medical care, employment, housing, counseling and other critical needs.

Tax Preparation
Through the United Way, low-income working individuals and families who file a federal income tax return may be able to receive money back from the government through the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC).  If you meet the requirements, the Earned Income Tax Credit can help you and your family keep more of what you earn. See more information on the United Way of King County website.
