Phone appointments are available and convenient; they allow for a client and social worker's flexible location. First-time callers are scheduling a confidential one-hour phone meeting with a Helpline House social worker, and receiving care ranging from expert advice navigating local, state, and federal resources to receiving one-on-one counseling to manage depression and anxiety. 

Phone appointments with a social worker

assist with a wide range of critical needs, including:

• Groceries 

• Rental and Mortgage Payment Assistance 

• Prescriptions Costs 

• Utilities and Internet Bills

• Mental Health Support

As we all move forward during Governor's Inslee's 'Safe Start' plan to slow down coronavirus spread, clients find that calling for a phone appointment has been a valuable and smooth transition. Callers can schedule a follow-up phone appointment or try an online conversation to continue their work during their financial or emotional recovery.
