Hello, Snohomish County!

Apr 18, 2021

Thanks to a major grant from the Community Foundation of Snohomish County, Companis is expanding our awareness and reach, introducing our work to the people one of the Washington State’s most beautiful and dynamic areas, a county growing in population and social services.

We’re not new to the county. In fact, we’ve been partnered with amazing nonprofits serving the area for many years: Project Access Northwest, NAMI Snohomish, Prescription Drug Assistance Foundation, and others. We just made our third placement (since February) with Everett-based ChildStrive, whose team serves the needs of families in the region. We’re honored to be in partnership with the ChildStrive team to build healthy and resilient communities.

Many longtime Companis Workers and a few of our Board members live in the county, and have been great advocates for expansion. Now, with the help of the Community Foundation grant, we’re building our presence. Given the pandemic, this has been through online video meetings. If you would like to gather your friends and colleagues together for a chance to hear from the Companis team about opportunities for service, we’d love to talk with you! Email us at [email protected], or call 206-328-6155, and we’ll connect with you.

If you work with a nonprofit looking to fill a staffing gap, or grow an important program, we’d love to introduce ourselves to you. Please contact our Outreach Specialist Cynthia Hunter, at [email protected], or call our office. The forms to apply to be a Companis volunteer professional, or a Companis partner agency, are found on our website. You’re welcome to apply at any time!

Companis is grateful to the Community Foundation of Snohomish County, as we focus our work on those agencies serving our most vulnerable neighbors impacted the pandemic, including BIPOC agencies working to grow their services. Companis brings 27 years of experience in placing professionals who want to serve, and supporting them in a variety of ways during their service commitment. We’re excited to reach out to county residents who are ready to share their skills and compassion with their neighbors through the great work of Snohomish County-based nonprofits that make a difference in the lives of so many.
