Opportunity Council -
Island County

The Opportunity Council is a private, non-profit Community Action Agency serving homeless and low-income families and individuals. Our mission is to help people improve their lives through education, support, and direct assistance while advocating for just and equitable communities.


For over 50 years we have offered a broad scope of services that range from addressing immediate and crisis-oriented needs (food, emergency shelter, eviction-prevention) to longer-term programs that promote self-sufficiency in our community (early childhood education, home weatherization).

The Island County Community Resource Center is dedicated to serving all individuals and families making Island County their home. Services include energy assistance, financial wellness, food and nutrition assistance, housing, and weatherization and home improvements.

Toddler Learning Center

Toddler Learning Center is a private non-profit 501c3 agency established in 1985. We provide therapy, education, and parent support for children 0-36 months with developmental delays in Island and San Juan Counties.

 

TLC's therapy, educational, and parent support services are provided in the home.  Therapists and teachers support parents and caregivers in implementing therapeutic practices into daily routines facilitating a child's development.

We believe:

  • Parents are their child's first and most important teacher.

  • Each child who comes to TLC brings their own strengths.

  • As members of the early intervention team, families are the major decision makers regarding their child's services.

  • The first three years of life are a critical time which offers promising opportunities for growth in all areas of development.

Our vision is that all families on Island and San Juan Counties with children birth to three years of age, who have developmental delays, will be identified and will receive the support, available resources, and services needed to enhance their child's optimal growth and development.

I Support the Girls -
Whidbey Island

Through an international network of Affiliates, I Support the Girls collects and distributes essential items, including bras, underwear, and menstrual hygiene products, allowing women and folks experiencing homelessness, impoverishment, or distress to stand tall with dignity.

What We Do
I Support the Girls collects donations of new and gently used bras, and individually sealed tampons and maxi pads and distributes them to girls and women experiencing homelessness across the U.S. and globally. Bras are considered a luxury and wearing the same bra for years causes health problems. Many times living on the streets means having to decide between buying a hot meal or a box of tampons. No one should have to make that choice!

Who Do We Help
Whether they be homeless, refugees, in transitional housing, or fleeing domestic violence, women and girls should never have to compromise on dignity. We partner with over 3,400 vetted organizations to meet the needs of the women we come in contact with. So far, more than 1,700,000 girls and women have been able to retain their dignity through our product drop-offs.

Why We Do It
People experiencing homelessness are stripped of their dignity. People pass them by on the street as if they’re invisible. Every person, regardless of their circumstances, is worthy of honor and respect. We need to treat every human with the respect they deserve. That starts with providing basic necessities for those who lack access or can’t afford it.

Where We Are Located
I Support The Girls has 53 affiliates across the United States and another 5 globally. Each affiliate is responsible for learning about the local need, meeting and vetting potential organizational partners, collecting and then distributing products so they reach the end user. Additionally, individuals and businesses (small and large) organize product drives across the country. Those products are then delivered to the local affiliate head who ensures they are distributed to our organizational partners.
