Immanuel Community Services
Working Together in Partnership to Rekindle Hope

Immanuel Community Services (ICS) provides assistance to individuals in the Cascade Neighborhood and greater Seattle area. ICS operates four programs – a Food Bank, a Community Lunch, a Hygiene Program, and a residential Recovery Program. Through all our programs, we strive to build relationships and be a place where people can become connected and involved. We work together, side-by-side, to maintain dignity, rekindle hope, and create a community of belonging.

ICS has much to be thankful for. We are grateful for the support we have received from Immanuel Lutheran Church, as well as individuals and agencies within the community. We hope you will journey with us as we work in partnership to nurture community in this vibrant neighborhood.
