St. James Outreach


The Outreach provides low income Kent residents and the homeless with food, water, clothing, utility shut-off assistance, drivers licenses and IDs, and referral information. We also provide school supplies and household furnishings, when they are available. Those seeking help must live within the Kent school district, be disabled, have children living with them, or are senior citizens. We always help the homeless.

The Outreach began almost 30 years ago when St. James saw the need arise. During these desperate times, our office is a lifeline for those in need. It has evolved into a place that gives hope to those in need.
