In this week’s Community Corner newsletter:

Annual eligibility confirmation requirements had been suspended during the pandemic but are now back in effect. Learn more about these changes and what steps to take here.
  • Catholic Community Services of Western Washington (CCSWW) is now providing additional help for people who qualify for the State’s Housing and Essential Needs (HEN) program. Assistance includes an ORCA LIFT annual subsidized pass, a monthly bag of hygiene and cleaning supplies, and light case management services and referrals.

  • Open Arms Perinatal Services provides community-based support during pregnancy, birth, and early parenting to nurture strong foundations to last a lifetime. Upcoming programs include a PEPS Group for Black Families, Childbirth Education for Multi-Cultural, Black and Spanish-Speaking Families, and a Labor of Love Brunch.
