East African Community Services
About the Organization:
With a vision of developing and strengthening the capacity of East African refugees in King County at the individual, family, and community levels, EACS has established a strong record of service in the King County. EACS meets our vision by providing culturally specific advocacy, information, referral and direct social services, and by bringing together members from the major sectors of the East African refugee community. Past EACS programs have assisted hundreds of refugees in achieving naturalization through citizenship classes, provided interpreting services, and provided in-home-tutoring for over 100 students.
MISSION: The mission of East African Community Services (EACS) is to provide culturally responsive K-12th Education programs that keep our youth safe and help them succeed in school and life.
VISION: Our vision is for our children to be safe and healthy, to graduate high school and complete college, to find careers they love and give back to their communities.
VALUES: Respect, Community, Culture & Identity, Commitment and Growth
