  • Northwest Immigrant Rights Project (Spanish fluency required)
  • Washington Low-Income Housing Alliance
  • Friends of the Children
  • REACH, Evergreen Treatment Services

Placements are made through a matching process between applicant skills and interests and agency needs. In addition to excellent housing, QuEST Fellows receive a communal food allowance, cost of utilities, health care expense fund, a bus pass, a modest personal stipend, and mentorship and support during their year of service.

We seek applicants from a wide range of backgrounds, international volunteers, and people of any (or no) spiritual affiliation. QuEST Fellows must be committed to cooperative living, service, and social justice. Most of our placement sites require a college degree.
