Get to know our Board Chairman
Helping Hand House is thrilled to introduce David Sattler as the new Chairman of our Board of Directors. David’s passion to help families escape the clear and present danger of experiencing homelessness led him to join HHH’s board in November of 2016 after honestly considering what part he should play in the battle to get families out of cars and into lasting solutions to their housing crisis.
In David’s words, “Most people share concerns for homeless children, and really do want to make a lasting difference. Micah 6:8 reminds us of a common desire to ‘act justly and to love mercy.’ But one can easily get the feeling of vertigo when considering matters of homelessness, asking themselves, ‘Should I give handouts? Am I enabling irresponsibility? Am I really helping?’ These are honest questions that I’ve wrestled with.”
“Helping Hand House gives you and me what we’ve longed for: the opportunity to make compassionate and lasting investments in others! While relying on God’s Grace, our mutual contributions in talent and treasure will help continue HHH’s amazing record of empowering families toward permanent housing, jobs and a safe bright future.”
David brings a wealth of Christ-inspired leadership and non-profit organizational experience. Prior to serving as lead pastor at First Baptist Church of Puyallup, David invested his time in international missions, helping launch Project C.U.R.E. in Denver, CO, an international medical relief organization. He served as an itinerant speaker for FORGE Ministries and worked in recruiting and development for the Boy Scouts of America. HHH is excited about benefitting from David’s multi-faceted career serving non-profits in a number of different areas.
David, his wife Stanton and their two daughters have lived in Puyallup for 12 years. David and Stanton homeschool the girls and enjoy watching them both run Cross Country at Puyallup HS and Aylen JHS. They love international missions, home hospitality, hiking and skiing. Last summer they went on the epic adventure of a 200-mile river-rafting trip down the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon.
Please welcome David aboard!
