How We Help

Professional services are provided cost-free to those in need by social services regardless of income. Needs are defined broadly and are not always financial.

There are four categories of social work assistance we offer, available to anyone who needs it. Each one is listed in the section below. Additional resources are also available.

All social workers at Helpline House are specially trained. They are responsible for the coordination of services with local, regional, state and federal agencies.

Do you need health insurance?

Loss of health insurance may make you eligible for free or low-cost coverage through Washington Apple Health.

Turning 65 or a permanent disability may make enrollment into a Medicare plan your next step.

Washington Apple Health

Medicaid is a health coverage program operated by states, within broad federal guidelines. Although the federal government pays a portion of the costs, Medicaid is administered and operated by states, and each state's program is a little different depending on the needs and goals of that state. 

About Washington Apple Health

In Washington, Medicaid is called Washington Apple Health. Free or low-cost coverage is available year-round for those who qualify. Since the Affordable Care Act launched in October 2013, more people have access to preventive care, such as cancer screenings, treatment for diabetes and high blood pressure, and many other health care services they need to stay healthy. Apple Health clients enroll and renew online using Washington Healthplanfinder. Apple Health is administered by the Washington State Health Care Authority: www.hca.wa.gov.

Get free and confidential assistance to sign up or renew your health and dental coverage through WaHealthPlanFinder.org

or schedule an appointment with a Helpline House case manager for a free phone meeting.

Medicare, the federal insurance plan for seniors, provides healthcare coverage for Americans 65 and older.
