Helpline House was founded in 1968 as a food bank in response to the "War on Poverty." It has evolved over the years to include an array of social services, such as social work case management and mental health counseling.
Helpline House is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides a network of critical social services through a number of different programs – including children services, senior services, financial assistance and a food bank. The agency's programs help more than 2,500 people every year. We invite you to become part of a circle of giving and receiving help. Neighbor helping neighbor, one neighbor at a time.
Helpline House's Mission Statement
Helpline House offers an umbrella of social services and invites the community to become a part of a circle of giving and receiving help - Neighbor helping Neighbor.
We would like to begin by acknowledging that the land on which we gather is within the ancestral territory of the suq̀ʷabš “People of Clear Salt Water” (Suquamish People). Expert fisherman, canoe builders and basket weavers, the suq̀ʷabš live in harmony with the lands and waterways along Washington’s Central Salish Sea as they have for thousands of years. Here, the suq̀ʷabš live and protect the land and waters of their ancestors for future generations as promised by the Point Elliot Treaty of 1855.
Helpline House has a policy of non-discrimination regardless of race, color, creed, religion, national origin, sex, sexual preference, age, disability, or veteran status, and is in compliance with all requirements of law and regulations with respect to employment, volunteer participation or service delivery.
Black Lives Matter
Helpline House recognizes and mourns racial acts of violence against Black communities.
We work tirelessly to build a healthy and whole community, and yet we recognize today, more than ever, that we cannot truly be a healthy and whole community if racism and bias exist in any form.
Helpline House stands in solidarity with Black Americans and against violence and systemic racial inequities.
