Young People in South King County Need You

Critical Need Now

Summer Search supports more than 500 young people from low-income communities in Tukwila, Kent, Renton, and Highline to become educated, thriving young adults. The devastation of the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted our low-income communities disproportionately. Our students have talent and potential, but they do not have financial resources they can redirect for unexpected needs. More than 93%  of our high school students qualify for free or reduced lunch, and our families have a median household income of $28,000. A majority of our students and their families have experienced job loss, food insecurity, threats to stable housing and reported heightened stress and uncertainty about their futures.

With schools closed and other support systems at capacity, Summer Search is one of the few constants our young people can count on for the support they need. 

To ensure their path to thriving adulthood is not permanently disrupted, Summer Search is providing low-barrier, urgent funding for groceries, utilities, and housing. To help young people process the new world around them, our team is also working harder than ever to provide in-depth mentoring with highly trained, full-time staff. 


We are uniquely positioned to act in a time of crisis to ensure our young people are unstoppable in pursuing their dreams. With your help, we can support more than 500 young people and their families in South King County - and make sure their path to college education, a successful career, and thriving continues. 

This is why we are asking for your support TODAY. At a time when our services are most critical AND we are fulfilling unprecedented emergency funding requests, our fundraising revenue is most at risk. The pandemic has forced us to cancel our fundraising luncheon, which typically provides more than 30% of our $2 million annual operating budget. To continue work as a trusted partner for our young people this year, it is critical that we meet our revenue goal of $650,000.
