Service Area

Hopelink is the largest social services agency in north and east King County, serving an 800-square mile area. Service centers are located in Bellevue, Kirkland/Northshore, Redmond, Shoreline and Sno-Valley (Carnation).

Hopelink Welcomes Everyone

We respect and value cultural differences at all times. Following the recent presidential election, news stories about the future of those who have immigrated to our country have caused fear and worry for some of who come to Hopelink for help. Everyone at Hopelink works hard to make our centers safe havens for those who need help. We are the same Hopelink today that we were yesterday. All services are still available, and all Hopelink locations are safe and welcoming places to be.


A Community Action Agency, Hopelink is funded by diverse sources – including public and private foundations, United Way and government support, as well as donations from individuals, organizations and businesses in the community.
