Sammamish Cares

One time assistance for Sammamish residents who need help in maintaining their property or home, but are either unable to afford or perform necessary repairs due to financial, physical or mental health.

Sammamish Cares is a collective effort between the City of Sammamish, Sammamish Kiwanis and

the Rotary Club of Sammamish in partnership with Faith in Action and Habitat for Humanity of

East King County.

Habitat for Humanity of East King County: www.habitatekc.org

 

Who we are:

Community service organizations within Sammamish and their volunteers who have the time and expertise to help Sammamish residents in need.

 

What we can do:

We can help with simple, onetime repairs that are a necessity for the homeowner, when the homeowner is unable to make the repairs due to a lack of funds; and/or physical or mental incapacity.  The projects we do are projects that the homeowner would normally handle but is temporarily unable to.  These include yard maintenance and simple repairs.  More complex repairs might be referred to Habit for Humanity of East King County and their Brush With Kindness program.  Projects for homeowners over the age of 60 will be reviewed by Faith in Action.  Homeowners might be asked to cover some of the costs if they are able to.

 

What we can’t do:

We are unable to help with ongoing maintenance or projects which require skills above the skill level of the volunteers.

Purpose:

Sammamish Cares is a consortium of local community service organizations banded together with the city to aid local homeowners who are unable to maintain their homes and properties.

 

How to ask for help:

Contact the City of Sammamish Volunteer Coordinator for referral into the program. The Volunteer Coordinator will fill out a short application in person or over the phone.  The application will then be forwarded to the Sammamish Cares Operations Committee for review. Projects are reviewed monthly, and in most situations you should hear back in a few weeks.  The Volunteer Coordinator can give you the next scheduled review date.  Emergency repairs will be handled on a case by case basis.  For other assistance, ask for the Sammamish Cares Community Brochure for referral to other community organizations that might be better equipped to support you in your time of need.
