Seasonal giving for those experiencing housing insecurity

Every year for more than 30 years, Church of the Redeemer has provided help during this time of year to the 11 families living at Hopelink Kenmore Place. There are a few different ways you can help.

Thank you for the help you provide these families. Reach out to Michelle Henderson with any questions at

We need your help to assist those facing housing insecurity. There are two ways to help. Can you help us help others?

Money to buy food gift cards

Each family receives a $100 gift card for food at Thanksgiving and a second $100 gift card in December. This means we need to collect $2200 for 22 cards by December 17.

Church of the Redeemer provides support to Hopelink Kenmore Place throughout the year. Any extra money raised for food gift cards at this time will go to other support for those at Kenmore Place.

Purchase a welcome gift for a child or teen

When a child or teen moves with their family into Hopelink Kenmore Place, they may have anxiety. To help them feel welcome, they are offered a gift that they choose. This can bring some comfort during a time of stress and change.

We collect these welcome gifts at Redeemer now to be offered year-round. (These are not holiday gifts.) We bring them to the Kenmore Place staff in January. Bring your unwrapped gift to Redeemer by December 17. There is a box to put your gift in the room where we worship.

Church of the Redeemer

Welcome to Church of the Redeemer: Worshiping God, living in community, and reaching out to the world. We are an Episcopal Church serving north King County and south Snohomish County, Washington. As you travel your road, go with friends walking the way of Jesus at Redeemer.

Church of the Redeemer is at 6210 Northeast 181st Street in Kenmore, Washington. We are a short distance north of Bothell Way, near the Burke-Gilman Trail. The entrance looks like a gravel driveway. The campus is larger on the inside than it is on the outside. And we managed to hide a large building on the side of a hill that is not easily seen from the street.

The Episcopal Church welcomes you.
