Our Mill Creek campus is working with Hand in Hand and Esther’s Place.
Hand in Hand’s Outreach Program and Safe Place Shelter
Hand in Hand’s outreach program aims to build relationships within the community through support services and community engagement events, providing youth and families with hope and opportunity.
Their purpose can be seen in every emergency food box we distribute, in each hour of academic support we provide, in every soccer game played, and in every connection we make with the families we meet.
Hand in Hand’s Safe Place shelter allows us to provide emergency care for youth initially entering foster care. At Safe Place, each child is resourced with new clothes, shoes, toiletries, a blanket, and more.
While in our care, these youth have a bed to sleep in, warm meals when they’re hungry, and space to play and have fun. Most importantly, the youth at Safe Place are cared for and are safe to just be a child.
The services provided at Esther’s place are accessible to women and their children who are in a variety of challenging circumstances. Homeless, domestic violence survivors, recovering drug users are just some of the clients that utilize this low-barrier facility.
More than just breakfast and lunch, which is served daily, our services include free phones, insurance cards, sleeping bags, and other essential survival supplies. Clients can also attend life skills classes, support groups, and recovery meetings daily.
Developing relationships with each woman is our most important function on guiding them toward the resources and services on their road to self-sufficiency.
We have compiled a list of Hand in Hand’s Christmas needs below. Donation items can be dropped off at our Mill Creek campus.
