Community Stabilization Services


Community Stabilization Services (formerly Emergency Services) serves the Puget Sound region, offering our services to Jewish individuals and families with the most critical needs, and, where possible, to individuals and families in the broader community. Jewish history and values guide our work; therefore, we have a responsibility to meet the particular needs of the Jewish community while also providing services to people of all backgrounds.

We assist people in the Jewish and broader communities to achieve stability and well-being by providing food, financial assistance and social support services.

Financial Assistance

We offer short term, limited rental assistance for move-in costs (first/last months’ rent and security deposits) or eviction prevention. We also offer limited financial assistance to cover unexpected financial shock, such as job losses or interruptions.

At this time, we are not providing financial assistance for homeless shelters or motel/hotel cost, nor are we able to provide housing location support. We encourage you to visit Washington 211, which offers a comprehensive database of resources that can connect you with shelter and housing navigation options.
