We Care About Our Community

At Insurance Services Group we care about our clients and our community. We believe supporting the place we call home is just as important as providing our clients the very best coverage and care - that’s why we created our ‘Caring for Community’ referral program. Our referral program is focused on giving back to local organizations doing amazing work in our local communities.

Referrals truly are the greatest compliment a client can give and the easiest way to support our friends and neighbors. Every referral we receive, Insurance Services Group donates $10 to one of our partnering community organizations.

With office locations in Edmonds, Sequim, and Lacey we’re thrilled to team up with a local nonprofit in each community providing immediate needs for children of all ages throughout Western Washington.

Below is more information about each of our current community partners:

Washington Kids in Transition

Troubled by the number of homeless students living in our community, a group of parents created Washington Kids in Transition. This year, between 250 to 400 students in the Edmonds School District are living in tents, cars, shelters, transitional homes and/or temporary housing. Many of these students leave school each day and won’t have anything to eat until the next morning when they arrive back at school. The parents behind Washington Kids in Transition are working to change that and we’re honored to help. Through its Snacks for Kids, Emergency Motel Voucher, and Emergency Food Closet programs, WaKIT is providing immediate needs for hundreds of local students.

North Olympic Foster Parent Association

The North Olympic Foster Parent Association supports, encourages, and empowers foster children, foster parents, and biological parents throughout Clallam County. For nearly 20 years, this nonprofit has provided children of all ages the resources and hope they need to thrive. While foster parents receive assistance from the state to help pay for food - often times there is little left over to afford new clothes, school supplies, or presents for holidays and birthdays. That’s where the North Olympic Foster Parent Association steps in to help. Throughout the year the nonprofit collects donations and organizes special events and activities for foster kids and their parents, including a Back Pack Picnic before the school year, a Talent Show, and a Winter Dinner where kids are given a stocking full of goodies for the holidays!

Capital Kids Connection

Capital Kids Connection supports, encourages, and empowers foster children and foster parents throughout Thurston, Mason, Lewis and Pierce counties. For nearly 15 years, this nonprofit has provided children from zero to 18 the resources and hope they need to thrive. Jennifer Paterno, founder of Capital Kids, says too often the focus of a foster child is how they came into care. Capital Kids is working to change that – committed to helping the children focus on a bright future. Through community support and donations Capital Kids provides numerous resources to foster children and foster families. Throughout the year the nonprofit collects donations and organizes special events, which include granting wishes, collecting school supplies, providing gifts and stockings during the holiday season, as well as mentoring and training foster youth to succeed after high school graduation.
