Get Help

For nearly 30 years, Mamma’s Hands has been a beacon of support and hope for the homeless in the greater Western Washington community. Today Mamma’s Hands serves hundreds of homeless single adults and families annually through our two programs, Phone Home and the House of Hope. To learn more or if you are in need of assistance please read about our programs below or reach out to us on our Contact Us page


House of Hope Resident Application

If you are in need of shelter for you and your children please complete our online Resident Application for the House of Hope. The application takes about 20 minutes to complete. Once you have submitted your application you will receive a call for a telephone intake if we are currently screening for openings. Please note that the program has a multi-step intake process, and we are unable to accommodate same day entry. If you are in need of immediate emergency shelter please call 2-1-1. Due to the large number of applications we receive you will only be contacted when we have openings. Thank you!

Mamma’s Hands is unable to provide immediate crisis assistance.

If you have an emergency or need immediate help to stay safe please call 9-1-1.

If you need help with a crisis please call the Crisis Connections’ 24-hour Crisis Line at (866) 427-4747.

The House of Hope

Located on ten acres of wooded land, mothers and children in crisis are cared for in two homes that serve up to seven families at a time. Mothers receive resources, advocacy and support services from a team of professional staff, and children are enrolled in local schools. Case management, job readiness support and parenting classes help equip each resident on her journey towards self-sufficiency. Most families are with us between six to twelve months before entering long-term housing. Upon graduation from the program families remain connected to services and a support network through our comprehensive Aftercare Program. 

The Victor Home

The Kimberly House

A beautiful 5,000 square foot house, The Victor Home serves 4 families at a time, and is especially suited for mothers with infants and toddlers.

Each family receives their own private bedroom and semi-private or private bathroom, and the rest of the home is shared communally. Staff offices are also located in The Victor Home.

A gorgeous 3,000 square foot, log-cabin style home, The Kimberly House serves up to 3 families at a time, and is especially suited for larger-sized families. Each family receives their own private bedroom and shared bathroom, and the rest of the home is shared communally. 

The majestic views of the fields and elk that share our property contributes to the healing atmosphere that our residents experience. A free-standing playroom filled with educational games and toys is also available to families from both homes.

“We would not be where we are without the House of Hope. Thank you for being a part of our family. We love you!”

Phone Home

Each week a group of dedicated volunteers travel together in the Mamma’s Hands’ bus to downtown Seattle, to offer hope to individuals in crisis along with a way off of the streets and back to stability. Homeless men and women are offered the free use of our cell phones to reconnect with their families, along with a meal and warm clothing in the winter months. Over the years Mamma’s Hands has reunited grateful men, women, and teens with their families across the United States and Canada by helping to pay their way home. It’s a solution to the homelessness crisis that works!

If you are a single homeless adult and in need of help or would like to be reunited with family, you can meet the Mamma’s Hands volunteers every Wednesday night at 7:00 pm in Occidental Park in Downtown Seattle. For more information email info@mammashands.org. If you are in need of emergency shelter or support services please call 2-1-1.
