Coming soon after the Thanksgiving baskets is the annual holiday shopping trip for the parents at Hopelink Kenmore Place. This occurs on Saturday, December 10, 2016.

On this day, people take the parents go on a shopping trip. Volunteers from Redeemer and Holy Apostles entertain the children with a visit from Santa. There are numerous arts and craft projects for the children, as well as games. The posting of the sign-up for drivers for the parents and child care volunteers on the outreach bulletin board is closer to the time this happens.

This is a great opportunity to interact with the folks Redeemer and Holy Apostles support and minister to at the shelter.

Hopelink Kenmore Place

Hopelink Kenmore Place

Hopelink Kenmore Place is a residence for families experiencing homelessness in the Northshore area of King County, Washington.

The mission of Hopelink is to promote self-sufficiency for all members of our community. Hopelink helps people make lasting change.

Since 1971, Hopelink has served homeless and low income families, children, seniors, and people with disabilities. They provide stability to those in crisis, and then, through an array of services, Hopelink helps equip clients with the skills they need to exit poverty on a permanent basis.

Hopelink emergency service centers are located in Bellevue, Kirkland/Northshore, Redmond, Shoreline, and Sno-Valley. See their areas of service.

Hopelink is funded by diverse sources. This includes public and private foundations, United Way, government support, and by donations from individuals, organizations and corporations in the community. Hopelink runs efficiently by keeping expenses low. With administrative costs at only eight percent of the budget, a full 92% of financial support goes directly to helping families in crisis and preventing homelessness.  As a Community Action Agency, Hopelink is governed by a board of directors.
