The Great Give is almost here

Support KIAC on Great Give day

Please support the Kitsap Immigrant Assistance Center

Grants for the kind of work we do are extremely limited. To compensate, our board and community volunteers have stepped up to fill the gap. At KIAC we work hard to maximize our resources. In 2014 our board and community volunteers donated over 3,100 hours, 2,900 of which were direct services to our clients. With the addition of our legal program the board and volunteers have already donated over 2,000 hours in the first four months of 2015.

Since its start in November of 2014 our Legal Services program has served 278 clients. These are people who would go without legal help without the existence of our legal program. Our Family Services and medical clinic programs have served over 100 clients.

Your contribution will help us continue this work.

Numbers only tell part of the story. Our clients are aspiring Americans who work hard to support their families, pay their taxes and participate in our community. Each one has a story. Here is one of them:

My parents and I came to America from England . I was 12 years old. My father was in the process of finalizing my INS paperwork. My father passed away. My paperwork never got finalized. Finding out as an adult, the situation I was facing & the uncertainty of my future, I felt there would be no hope.
K.I.A.C are professional and knowledgeable men and women, Who  genuinely care the people they represent.
Today I now have hope and my future is something to look forward to.
Thank you all.

Sincerely, MC

Choosing to support KIAC during the Great Give means you’ll be helping the only organization in Kitsap County dedicated solely to assisting immigrants from all nations become productive, contributing members of our community.

KIAC Immigration Legal Services Reaches Out to Forks

Following up on a community information meeting in March, the KIAC legal team went back to Forks last weekend to guide individual clients in preparing to apply for immigration programs benefiting childhood arrivals and parents of American citizens. With the help of community organizers and local translators, KIAC met with 21 clients in this under served region of our state. We also did some coaching for people who are sole proprietors regarding keeping good business records. We helped one person with a case of employer exploitation.


With the help of your donations, KIAC will also be reaching out to other outlying areas, including Aberdeen, Sequim and North Mason County. More than 149 clients eligible for these programs are currently being served out of our Bremerton office.
