Resources for Residents of King County:

Regional Donations Connector

King County has developed a Regional Donations Connector at https://kingcounty.gov/depts/emergency-management/special-topics/donations-connector.aspx that connects those who want to help with organizations seeking assistance.

The goal of the site is to connect those who want to help – either through volunteering or providing donations – with non-profits who are looking for support. If your organization would like to make a request for support, visit https://kingcounty.adoptcompany.com/login to create an account and register your request. 

Resources for Veterans

Before visiting local VA medical facilities, community providers, urgent care centers, or emergency departments in their communities, veterans experiencing COVID-19 symptoms—such as fever, cough, and shortness of breath—are encouraged to call their VA medical facility or call MyVA311 (844-698-2311, press #3 to be connected). Veterans can also send secure messages to their health care providers via MyhealtheVet, VA’s online patient portal. VA clinicians will evaluate veterans’ symptoms and direct them to the most appropriate providers for further evaluation and treatment.

United Way of King County

The United Way of King County has set up a site where non-profits can list any volunteer opportunities and in-kind donation needs they may have during this crisis – the link to that site is  https://volunteer.uwkc.org/volunteer-response-covid-19/.

Unemployment and Workers’ Compensation

The King County Council has put together a list of resources to help navigate different agencies and how to file for unemployment or workers’ compensation. Anyone who has lost their job due to coronavirus, had to self-quarantine, or take care of an infected relative should file for unemployment insurance. Governor Inslee announced a one-week waiver period to receive unemployment, getting people resources they need more quickly. Anyone whose job brought them into direct contact with an infected person should apply for workers’ compensation

Housing Stability

Last week Governor Inslee announced a 30-day statewide moratorium on evictions of residential tenants.

Food Assistance

If you’re looking for help feeding yourself or your family, visit the Food Lifeline website to find a partner food bank, food pantry, or hot meal program in your neighborhood. This food is free and available to you, even if you don’t qualify for SNAP or EBT.
