For the first time in our history, Companis has two locations and we’re celebrating this milestone. Our Snohomish County office is open! We’re in Everett at the nonprofit site The Village on Casino Road, a hub co-managed by longtime partner agency ChildStrive. Companis is one of several nonprofits there, co-located at The Village, to better serve the people and agencies in Snohomish County. We’re honored to share space with our new neighbors on Casino Road.
I’m inviting you, personally, to join us at our Open House event on Thursday, July 21, to celebrate this historic moment with us. Use this link to RSVP! At the Open House, you’ll meet our staff, including our new Snohomish Program Manager, Tia Lawson, who joined us in May.
The new office is our launchpad for community building and connecting in Snohomish County. We are so grateful to our Companis Workers, nonprofit partners and area funders in the county who, together, make this possible.
And the exclamation mark on this news is that Companis has added placements in both King and Snohomish counties. Over the past six months, our program team has made 53 placements across 29 nonprofits, with 15,372 unduplicated clients – our neighbors – who are being served with compassion and expert assistance. One-third of our placements are in Snohomish County, with two-thirds in King County. This speaks to the need for basic services our neighbors are experiencing.
Please, come celebrate with us on July 21 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. We’ll be sharing snacks and refreshments, and talking about our mission and plans for our continued expansion into the area. Jump on board!
