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.

CURRENT OPPORTUNITIES

 

 

 

 

Celebrate the Holidays

Help make this the most Wonderful Time of the Year for a family!

Adopt a Family – You can provide non-perishable food for holiday dinner and gifts for each member of the family. You will be provided with information about the family and each member’s needs and wishes. You will also receive sizes for everyone in the family. Many kids will “wish” for items that are beyond what we expect to be donated. This is normal and you are not expected to purchase higher priced items. You should only purchase what you are comfortable with and what you want to give. Gifts need to be wrapped, labeled with an identification number you will be given upon sign-up, and delivered to our office no later than Friday, December 14th.

Santa Store – We are accepting new, unwrapped items for our “Santa Store”. Parents will have a 2-3 day period to come in and “shop” for items to wrap and give to their own kids. Our hope is that parents feel part of this wonderful time with their families. Items can be anything for ages newborn to age 18, i.e., toys, gift cards, clothing, etc. Gifts should be unwrapped and delivered to our office no later than Friday, December 14th.

What a wonderful way to get your own family involved and your children ways to participate!

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!

Please contact us at impact@helpinghandhouse.org.
