Community Resources

Lake Washington PTSA Council has created a community outreach resource center for use by our schools administrators and PTSAs to provide information and connections for families in need of the various local, state and federal services available.

Included in this one-click resource center:

  • Comprehensive spread sheet of services divided by service needs (housing, food, finances, etc.).
  • 1 sheet printable flyers for distribution for the main areas of need (food, shelter, language help, counseling) available in English, Spanish, Chinese, and Russian
  • Quick look list of HELP NOW resources

Please contact us if you have any questions or additions to the resources that are presented here.
