About This Cause

ECS is a non-profit organization established to provide support services to Ethiopian immigrants in the greater Seattle area. Since it’s inception in 1983, ECS has been a place where Ethiopians came to have someone listen to their concerns and help solve their problems. Many have been assisted to get into public housing, shelters, employment, counseling, translation of important documents, support with travel documents, interpreting services for those with limited English, and counseled with health, legal and immigration issues. During unexpected emergencies and accidents that results the death of a community member, the Ethiopian Community Mutual Association is there to organize local Ethiopians to put together funds for funeral and other emergency expenses. In addition, ECS promotes social and cultural awareness and active citizenship by organizing social gathers, sport clubs and community celebrations that brings together Ethiopians living in Seattle and its vicinity.
