HOPELINK groundbreaking signals a stronger community of Redmond

May 26, 2017|Director's Update

 A few days prior to the start of Community Action Month (May), Commerce helped celebrate the groundbreaking for a new integrated services center in Redmond with Mayor John Marchione and leaders and supporters of Hopelink.

Hopelink is one of the 30 community action agencies all over the state that Commerce contracts with to fund a wide range of services for people in need. These non-profit service providers are crucial partners in our work to strengthen communities by supporting programs ranging from emergency housing, food and nutrition services to heating and energy assistance, financial capabilities training and transportation.

Without our local agency partners such as Hopelink Redmond and their supporters, we would not be able to deliver funding effectively to meet the highest priority needs in each community. Through these collaborative relationships established over many years, we make the most of every state dollar available for community services.
