Although we know that 86,000 people in north and east King County (one-in-seven) are currently living in poverty, the breadth of that number tells only part of the story. Detailed data also enables us to identify who most needs our help – where they live and the challenges they face. It enables us to recognize the scope of the need, and to chart a course to address that need. And it tells us which of our programs and services are most effective.
In 2014, Hopelink released its first community impact report, outlining and evaluating the steps we are taking to build a stronger community. The report provided a clear and definitive picture of our service area, a comprehensive review of client demographics and a summary of results in key program areas.
The 2016 report – released in March 2017 – focuses on Hopelink programs and services that were provided to 63,700 low-income residents of King and Snohomish Counties during the previous year – including 21,641 clients who received community services (food, shelter, heat, employment and adult education, etc.) and 43,994 people who were served through Hopelink’s transportation program.
