A Place To Turn For People In Need…
Helping Hand of South Whidbey is a Christian-based charity staffed by volunteers from about 10 South Whidbey churches, and is supported through donations by churches, community donors, service organizations, businesses, and a few foundation grants from time to time. 89% of our total budget is used for client services.
Our goal is to provide immediate financial assistance when basic services of life and well-being are in danger of being discontinued. We also make referrals to local, county or state agencies for longer-term assistance.
Volunteers staff the office from 9 a.m. to noon on weekdays. Financial assistance provided through Helping Hand is by way of a grant, with payments made directly to utility companies and landlords on an individual’s behalf.
Helping Hand assists with:
- Heating bills
- Electric Bills
- Mortgage payments
- Home emergencies
- Referrals to other agencies

"Some people live paycheck to paycheck, walking a fence of financial instability.
Any emergency or life change can knock them off that fence, sometimes into a downward spiral of poverty.
Helping Hand volunteers show people that they are not alone, and provide some immediate financial relief and helpful advice."
