East African Community Services (EACS) has provided vital support to King County’s East African refugee and immigrant population for 20 years. From our beginnings in naturalization and citizenship services, we’ve honed our focus to provide East African youth and families with programs and resources to adjust to life in the United States, preserve diverse cultural heritages, and participate in broad and integrated community life. Our culturally-competent, holistic approach offers a full ecosystem of programs to ensure our children are safe and healthy, graduate high school and complete college, find careers they love, and give back to their communities. Today, we are honored to be a deeply rooted and trusted resource for the more than 75,000 East Africans who live in King County.
EACS’ services are rooted in five guiding actions:
Our holistic programs prepare East African youth to be strong, engaged students and forge a supportive, positive community around every child—from cradle to career. We serve 350+ children every year.
