Who we are?
Kitsap Community Resources is a leading community-action agency established in 1957 serving Kitsap County. We serve the entire county through facilities in Bremerton, Bainbridge Island, Poulsbo, Silverdale, and Port Orchard. There are 30 Community Action Agencies in the state of Washington that serve all 39 Washington counties.
Over the years, KCR has developed a growing number of programs and services to meet the specific needs of Kitsap County’s low-income populations. We provide these services in partnership with a number of local private and public organizations, including schools, churches, the housing authorities, college, county, state agencies, health district and private businesses. Serving 10% of Kitsap's 270,000 residents, KCR is our region's trusted professionals in addressing issues of poverty. We provide proven leadership, practical solutions, and effective advocacy to create a community where ALL of our neighbors have the opportunity to thrive.
Why Donate to KCR?
In Kitsap County, there are more than 24,000 people living at or below the federal poverty level. To visualize this number of people, imagine sitting at a sold-out Mariners game and drawing a line that divided the stadium into two equal parts. More than half of everyone seated on one side of that line would represent the number of people who are – at this very moment – living in our community without the ability to provide food and shelter for themselves and their families.
17% of that number are children under the age of five.
KCR offers a range of services to help these families, including:
All these programs are created to empower these families and allow them to thrive as everyone deserves in our community.
