Join us in ending family homelessness, one family at a time.

HHH could not provide all of the needed housing services for families without the generous support of like-minded donors and volunteers. Every dollar you give and every hour you volunteer has a tangible value in completing our work. Our appreciation runs deep for those who value the life-changing and community-transforming work we do.

If you are passionate about the well-being of children and families in Pierce County, we welcome you to consider the many ways to get involved and help us achieve our mission of providing emergency shelter and housing solutions for families in our community, ending their crisis of homelessness.






Fill the Backpacks!

We are collecting school supplies to fill backpacks for all students in our programs to make sure all children are able to start school equipped for a successful year!

We need your help by donating any type of supplies for students in Grades K-12. Use the 2019 School Supply List for suggestions.

Our families are attending “Backpack Day” on Wednesday, August 21 so we’re hoping to have lots of supplies ready for that event. We will continue to collect your donations throughout the year to help make sure children always have what they need to be successful.

For more information, call Laurie at 253-848-6096 Ext. 101 or email

Having a Yard Sale?

A New and Fun Way to Get Involved!

Are you having a yard sale this year? Did you know there’s a neat way to partner with HHH to not only clean out your garage, but also to spread the word about how we serve families in our community?

Some of us wonder how we’ve managed to collect as much “stuff” as we have, and just want to get rid of it. We don’t really care about making a few extra bucks, we just want to make room to collect more!

If that sounds like you, let us know the date of your yard sale and we will bring or send you a 25 x 30 sign saying that proceeds are being contributed to Helping Hand House.

You can achieve two great goals at the same time…get rid of things you no longer want or use and contribute to your community!

For more information, call Laurie at 253-848-6096 Ext. 101 or email

Birthday Program

Support families in need by providing a cake and gift for a kid’s special day through our Birthday Program..

When a family is homeless and struggling to make ends meet, one of the things that always gets “pushed aside” is birthday celebrations. Here at Helping Hand House, every kid is special – and special kids deserve a birthday surprise!

We would love your help making a kid’s birthday a day to remember. Of you are interested in participating in this program, let us know. What a fun way to make a difference!

Donate Supplies or Organize a Drive of Your Own

Our most consistent need is for items like linens, toiletries, cleaning supplies, and many other items used in our homes and by our families. Stocking these homes is one of the first steps of welcoming a family into their new home.

Our inventory is running critically low. We need your help! We accept supplies, gift cards, and more to help stock these homes. Go to Supply List and Donation Options to answer many of your questions.

If you are looking for a way to maximize your impact? Gather your friends, church, or another local group together and organize your own supply drive!

Items can be delivered or shipped to the Helping Hand House office.

Partnership Opportunities

There is simply no way Helping Hand House can provide the services it does for children and families without critical partnerships with individuals, businesses, churches, and other entities in our community. Since our inception, it has been these partnerships that have helped us leverage our resources to positively affect the lives of those in need.

We are always looking to expand our scope of outreach and services to families. If you have an interesting or creative idea about how you can partner with us to help achieve our mission, we would love to hear from you!
