Our mission is to alleviate the effects of poverty, hunger, homelessness and addiction by providing community-based social services to those in need.
Immanuel Community Services (ICS) is the longest social service agency in South Lake Union, serving individuals experiencing hunger & homelessness in the greater Seattle area. Through our four programs - SLU Food Bank at ICS, ICS Hygiene Center, a residential ICS Recovery Shelter and Community Lunch & meal program - we care for those struggling to survive for over 40 years.
ICS partners with service providers, faith communities and community members as we work to nurture community and serve the most vulnerable in the community.
ICS strives to build relationships and be a place where people can become connected and involved, working together, side-by-side, to maintain dignity, rekindle hope and create a community of belonging.
