Helpline House

Helpline House is a community non-profit agency providing an umbrella of social services striving to help our Bainbridge Island neighbors meet essential needs. Basic services are provided cost-free, regardless of income. Needs are defined broadly and are not always financial. Any community member in crisis or in need of consultation is welcome. The agency houses a comprehensive food bank, in addition to a full scope of social services. Social service appointments cover a large range and include: direct financial assistance, activity scholarships, assistance with Medicare (SHIBA), transportation assistance, and resource referrals. Helpline offers children’s programs for back to school and school breaks, in addition to holiday giving programs for all clients. In 2023 Helpline House added two new positions to further strengthen the community; a children’s mental health therapist, and a community care coordinator to assist with the island’s aging population.
