Rent/Utility Assistance


Rent and Utilities

Need assistance with rent or utilities?  At the beginning and middle of every month we assist as many West Seattle families as we can who meet our mission of having a one-time emergency with rent or utilities.  Please complete our financial assistance application to apply for assistance or you may call 932-HELP and leave a message for our volunteers.  Our volunteers will call you back to you and go through our 5 minute financial assistance application.

  • With our limited assistance, we are able to help about 1 in 3 families with rent or utilities.
  • Amounts usually range between $50 and $250 dollars. We are not usually able to assist with amounts over $300
  • You must be a West Seattle resident (residing in zip codes 98106, 98116, 98126, 98136, or 98146) to qualify.
  • Assistance is only available once every 12 months. If awarded, you are ineligible to reapply for assistance until 12 months after the original application date.

Our volunteers can also direct you to other community resources that may be helpful, even those outside West Seattle.

All clients must verify ID, income, and bill information before receiving assistance.
