Human Services Needs Update

The City of Bellevue publishes the Human Services Needs Update at the beginning of each two-year funding cycle. Since 1989 this report has offered a summary of human services trends, needs and gaps in Bellevue, East King County, King County and Washington.

The Needs Update helps the Human Services Commission develop focus areas for funding recommendations to the City Council, guides the city’s Human Services division and provides information for other city departments, faith communities, concerned community groups and nonprofit health and human services providers in King County.

Even though the economy has improved, there are still many Bellevue residents who continue to struggle to provide the basics like housing, food and transportation for themselves and their families.

The 2017-2018 Human Services Needs Update provides a snapshot of what residents need, and also, how the City of Bellevue and other groups in the community are coming together to respond using a "collective impact" approach. Collective impact is defined as the commitment of key players from different sectors in the community to a common agenda for effective problem solving.
