Peace has a long history of partnering with various local, national, and international ministries through our Mission of the Month special offering, fundraising projects, and regular collection of supplies.
Some of our core partners include the Stanwood/Camano and Arlington Food banks, the Gathering Place weekly meal program, Housing Hope, and Lutheran World Relief.
We also regularly make our facilities available to local groups such at 4-H, Alcoholics Anonymous, AL-Anon, Pills Anonymous, local community boards, and the annual Silvana Fair.
The Mission of the Month for March is the Arlington Community Resource Center.
Community Resource Centers move people from crisis to self-sufficiency. LCS Northwest’s Community Resource Centers make a powerful impact on people and communities by working to eliminate barriers and provide hope.
The six Snohomish County centers are warm and welcoming places with caring staff who represent the communities and cultures we serve. Our team, specializing in Trauma Informed Care, serve people each day facing instability and crisis.
We stand ready to help low-income families and individuals meet life’s basic needs. Our team helps them deal with mental health, domestic violence and substance abuse. We help them overcome language and cultural barriers. We help them improve their education, find jobs and regain hope.
The resource center at Smokey Point can assist with:
• Finding a place to live
• Retaining current housing
• Basic necessities: food, toiletries, diapers
• Mental health support
• DSHS and government benefit applications
• Medical insurance applications
• Connecting those living with disabilities to support resources
• Veteran services
• Job search: resumes and cover letters
• Utilities (with disconnection notice)
• Emergency clothing and household items
• Back to school supplies
• Holiday giving for children
• Referrals to community resources
Please be aware that the Arlington Resource Center is one of our major resources for referring folks in need who come to our door. Thank you!
