To the Puyallup Herald…

Newsflash to the Puyallup Herald:

“Helping Hand House celebrates 25 years of sheltering the homeless in Puyallup and East Pierce County”

That’s thousands of families assisted over the last quarter century through our homeless prevention programs, hundreds hosted in our emergency and transitional housing – each one treated with dignity and respect. Each family member got a handmade quilt, donated by faithful friends in one of several churches or the Puyallup Valley Quilters.

Do we put people in dorms? Nope – we’d prefer to give people a home, and the help they need to make a life-long change. Help in budgeting, getting a job, a car, improving a credit score. A new start that when it looks hope’s gone forever.

So we’re a little different than your average homeless shelter…does that mean we don’t exist?
