Hopelink Announces New CEO. On March 26, Hopelinks Board of Directors announced Lauren
Thomas as the new CEO of the organization. Board Chairman Jos Piero said a rigorous, nationwide
search produced a number of exceptional candidates, and in the end, Thomas proved she had the
vision, passion and expertise to take Hopelink to the next level in its mission to help families in need
move from crisis to self-sufciency. Thomas has more than 25 years of leadership experience with
strategy development, business operations and mission delivery focusing on the not-for-prot sector
and is a Certied Public Accountant and a Professional in Human Resources. She had served as
interim CEO since October, when Marilyn Mason-Plunkett retired for health reasons.
It has been 50 years since
President Lyndon Johnson
called for an end to poverty
in the United States.
Standing up for those
who were living on the
outskirts of hope, Johnson
promised, it will not be a
short or easy struggle. No
single weapon or strategy
will sufce, but we shall not
rest until that war is won.
The richest nation on earth
can afford to win it. We
cannot afford to lose it.
The sweeping legislation that followed crafted
in response to a national poverty rate of 19 percent
met with some success. And in 1964, Johnsons
Economic Opportunity Act created Community Action
Agencies local private and public nonprot organi-
zations to ght poverty by empowering the poor.
Hopelink is one of more than 1,000 such agencies
nationwide that are working on the front lines in the
war on poverty, and one of 30 in Washington state.
And we are making a difference.
I recently heard about a 97-year-old grandmother
named Grace who came to Hopelink for help with her
utility bills. She lived alone and was ercely independent,
but beginning to struggle on her own. We were able to
help Grace with utility expenses, while also connecting
her with other services she needed services that would
keep a roof over her head, ensure she has enough to eat,
and perhaps most importantly, help her remain indepen-
dent and continue living at home as long as possible.
Another client named Caitlin walked into a Hopelink
Center for the rst time knowing only that she needed
help. She had undergone major surgery and couldnt
work, and as a single women with no family support,
Caitlin could focus only on where her next meal might
come from. She left that day with an emergency bag of
food, but returned a few days later to sign up for regular
food bank visits ensuring she would have enough to
eat while she was healing and getting her strength back.
And then there is Darren, who was working two jobs
to support his young family, living paycheck-to-paycheck
but still able to handle basic expenses. Unable to afford
medical insurance, a dental emergency dental forced
a difcult decision: Take care of a problem tooth, or
pay the water bill. At risk of having their water shut
off, Darren and his wife Lisa came to Hopelink, where
they received emergency nancial assistance to cover
their utility bill along with a referral to a community
resource that offers affordable health coverage.
The people we see every day in our centers each have
a unique story. But they all have one thing in common:
They have all been touched by poverty.
Empowering the poor and addressing core issues
around poverty are crucial. When someone contacts
Hopelink in need of food, or shelter, or heat, they often
have no idea what to do next. Some are in crisis; home-
less or nearly so, hungry and scared. Getting back on
their feet isnt even on the radar.
Thats where Hopelink comes in, with a focus on
the big picture. A man who was downsized may need
job training. A grandmother who is no longer able to
drive may need rides to medical appointments to stay
healthy and avoid a costly hospital stay. A woman who
escaped domestic violence may need English as a Second
Language classes in order to work, or nancial skills. We
know these steps are essential to a path out of poverty.
For others, stability is the driving force. We know, for
example, that children who are homeless are four times
more likely to drop out of school than children who have
a stable home. So every time Hopelink is able to ensure
that a family has a warm, safe, secure place to live, their
odds of self-sufciency increase.
Hopelink is proud to be part of a larger system
of change in our community; a system of vibrant
Community Action Agencies that are working to ensure
stability and self-sufciency for everyone. We are con-
dent we are on the right track, and that our strategy for
success is the best avenue toward helping people and
changing lives.
We also know that every success story, every positive
statistic in this annual report, every client who comes
back to say thank you, is a direct result of your ongoing
support. You are the reason we are able to make a
difference in the community, and in peoples lives. And
you are the reason we are optimistic the war on poverty
can be won. Thank you!

Whos Helping Hopelink
Group Healths Bellevue Medical Centers staff and
patients raised a record-breaking total of $17,300. The
funds were raised when Volunteer Services Manager
Candy Troy had the vision to create more than 20 unique
gift baskets for their annual Holiday Basket fundraiser.
Residents of Emerald Heights in Redmond, and students
of Carl Sandburg Elementary School in Kirkland, have
shown that generosity spans the generations. Last year
they both participated in every one of Hopelinks annual
campaigns, donating a combined total of nearly $10,000,
thousands of pounds of food, as well as school supplies
and gifts.
The No Food in the Library rule does not apply for
the King County Library Systems A Place at the Table
campaign. They collected 30,808 pounds of food in 2013,
sharing donations between Hopelink, Food Lifeline, and
Lifelong AIDS Alliance. They will continue the program
throughout 2014.
Workplace team-building activities are great opportuni-
ties to give back. Eddie Bauer employees bowled like
champions at their Strikes for Hope activity. Each strike
bought them a $20 donation, and the event raised an
impressive $2,000 in total.
When coworkers come together it can make a big
impact. Zetrons staff raised $3,310, as well as food
and toys for our giving rooms. NetMotion Wireless
employees worked together to bring in a generous
$2,400 and six boxes full of toys. Finally, the staff of
TalentWise raised more than $4,000 in addition to 6,531
pounds of food for our food banks.
Interests and hobbies are a great way to give back.
Discover Yoga offered free Yoga in the Park sessions Yoga in the Park Yoga in the Park
over the summer and asked for donations for Hopelink.
In the fall, a group of local authors called Seattle7Writers
collected donations for our Adult Education program at
a book festival.
Creativity and competition really got these heavy-hitters
going during the holidays. Intellectual Ventures staff
members bid on everything from homemade pies to
handcrafted furniture during their auction. This raised
a whopping total of $41,421 throughout their gIVe
money, gIVe hope campaign. Teams from nine buildings
at Genie/Terex went head-to-head to raise $2,183 and
11,924 pounds of food, providing nearly 10,000 meals for
our clients.
Kids had a happier holiday thanks to Tullys Coffees collection of more than 1,200 toys
at their retail locations. Meanwhile, 7th and 8th grade students of Canyon Park Junior
Highs Action Team club organized a school-wide toy drive and collected more than
100 toys before coming in to volunteer.
I wanted to be Picasso. Picasso and Joni Mitchell.
Leslye Lewis laughed. It was the 70s and the Bellevue
teenager had big dreams, growing up in an ambitious
family that always encouraged her to succeed.
My grandmother taught me to color outside the lines I thought I could do
anything, she said. So enrolling at the University of Washington to study
oil painting seemed a natural step, if not exactly the most pragmatic career
preparation.
A new friend she met in school invited her to Hawaii, so Leslye took a
quarter off from her studies and the two young women lived on a Waikiki
beach for several months. When she returned to the Northwest, her dad
suggested she apply for work with a colleague of his a dentist. He was
looking for an assistant, and Leslye got the job. She was 20 years old, and she
never looked back.
LOSING STABILITY,
FINDING HOPE
Donate online at hope-link.org 11 10
The 20-hour-per-week income helped keep her aoat
but didnt pay enough to make ends meet, and Leslyes
savings dwindled. And when that job ended, she had only
the remnants of her savings account coupled with about
$100 per week in unemployment compensation to get by.
This time, looking for work brought a rude awak-
ening: There were no offers. Leslye threw herself into
the job search, turning to the states WorkSource
program for leads, updating her resume, networking,
lling out applications. Open to anything, she still
focused on the dental industry where she had always
found work in the past. But even entry-level jobs were
out of reach.
They thought I had too much experience, Leslye said.
I had done consulting work in the past. I had years of expe-
rience. They thought I would ask for the world. Or
they thought I was going to retire soon.
Leslye was in her 50s and stunned to realize her
age was an issue. She revamped her resume again
to hide some of her years of top-level experience.
Still nothing.
I always paid my bills always, Leslye said. I will not
eat before I will not pay my bills. I was raised that way. I
was raised that you dont ask for help; you pull yourself
up by your boot straps. You do it yourself.
It was November 2010 and getting cold outside. Leslye
had cut back on everything she could, pinching pennies,
cutting coupons, shopping sales. But she was suddenly
faced with not being able to turn on the heat. She
couldnt afford groceries. A friend told her she needed to
ask for help; an idea Leslye railed against at rst.
When reality really bit, that this is whats going on,
you do not have money, you cannot just create a job out
of thin air, its not happening, she said, I just had to
swallow my pride and say, hey, I need help.
Picking up the phone to dial (the Hopelink Bellevue
Center) was the hard part it felt like it weighed 500
pounds. But once I made the phone call, someone was
there to help. And I was respected... I felt respected. I
didnt lose my dignity. I didnt feel like anyone was looking
down on me. I really felt like Hopelink was there to help.
Leslye qualied for energy assistance and also visited
the food bank.
I (had) never needed help. I never thought I would
need to ask for help, she said. I was shocked that
Hopelink was able to help me that much.
In the summer of 2011, one of the dentists Leslye had
worked for in the past called her out of the blue, and
asked her to come back and manage the front ofce. The
dentist has a long-term plan that includes steady work
for Leslye as long as she needs to stay there. Leslye is
humbled by the realization that she could be living in her
car instead of back on her feet.
I got off the pity pot pretty fast when I looked at
how things could have been, she said. I was fortunate.
I didnt lose everything, and I am grateful. But that
was enough for me the realization that youre just a
paycheck away from needing help.
Leslye says that time has even helped her look at
the world in a new way. Now she sees things with a
bit more compassion and understands those who need
help to get by.
Ive learned to not make assumptions, and to treat
everyone the same way, she said, because you just
never know what theyre going through. And you never
know when a kind word will make someones day.
Every day is truly a gift for me, and I know Ill be
okay, she said. Hopelink was awesome.
Ive been in teeth my whole life, she said. And Ive always gotten every
job Ive ever applied for.
Although she continued to paint and has sold some of her artwork over
the years, Leslye would work steadily in the dental eld for decades.
In her late 20s, she married an old friend and the couple had a daughter,
Whitney. They divorced amicably when Whitney was two and a half years old,
and Leslye became a single mom, continuing to work while paying for daycare.
In 2005, she lost her job, and for the rst time, struggled to nd some-
thing else. A part-time position at a social services agency lasted a few years,
but unfortunately, she was so successful at streamlining the ofce proce-
dures, she organized her way right out of a job.
When reality really bit, that this is
whats going on, you do not have
money, you cannot just create a job
out of thin air, its not happening ...
I just had to swallow my pride and
say, hey, I need help.
Picking up the phone to dial (the
Hopelink Bellevue Center) was the

500 pounds. But once I made the

dignity. I didnt feel like anyone was
looking down on me. I really felt like
Hopelink was there to help.

Two years after their eldest son died from a seizure in
2004, Renee was diagnosed with breast cancer. Her rst
rounds of treatment went well, though, knocking the
disease into remission.
Even after the cancer came back with a vengeance
and Renee was forced to stop working, she and Greg
were able to keep their heads above water.
But when Greg was diagnosed with advanced colon
cancer in June, their nancial safety net evaporated.
With the main breadwinner too weak to work and
uninsured the family fell behind on rent and utilities
and even had a hard time buying groceries.
It felt like wed
been hit with bombs
one after the other,
Renee said.
Then a friend told
her about Hopelink.
With centers across
North and East King
County, the organiza-
tion provides a range of
services aimed mostly
at helping people cope
with crises and get
back on their feet. Like
many of the 60,000
people Hopelink serves
each year, Renees rst
contact came through
one of the groups ve
food banks.
There, she discov-
ered that Hopelink also
provides emergency
assistance to keep
people from being evicted.
They paid our utilities. They helped pay our rent,
Renee said. They were the answer to a prayer.
Founded in 1971 by laid-off Boeing workers who
banded together to help each other nd jobs, Hopelink
continues that mission with programs to help people
improve their rsums and job-hunting skills. The
nonprot provides transportation services along with
temporary housing, adult education and advice on
money management.
Were trying to help people get back to self-suf-
ciency, said spokeswoman Kris Betker.
For Greg and Renee Wood, rent assistance helped
solve their most pressing nancial need. Ongoing visits
to the food bank keep groceries in the fridge while
both husband and wife undergo physically draining
chemotherapy.
This is a difcult time for them, said Kay Hockeiser,
an emergency services specialist at Hopelinks Kirkland
center. They have been hardworking all their lives,
and they really do want to work, but because of these
unfortunate events they cant.
Its particularly tough on Greg. As head of the
household all those years, I feel like Im supposed to
be taking care of everyone else, he said on a recent
Sunday, as family and friends gathered at his home for
a Bible discussion.
Greg, 60, and Renee, 58, passed the leadership of
their Lynnwood ministry, Word of Life, to their son
Sheldon a couple of
years ago. Making
a living as a pastor
is rarely a lucrative
business, said Greg.
After he gave up
church work, he took
a job at U-Haul, and
was two months away
from being eligible for
health insurance when
he received his cancer
diagnosis.
Though both he
and Renee eventually
qualied for coverage
through Medicaid, they
still owe thousands
of dollars for medical
expenses.
But they refuse to
let their nancial and
health woes take over
their lives.
Im very optimistic, said Renee. I feel like this is just
another part of our journey, that were going to grow
and learn from.
This fall, Renee, Greg and several family members
set up housekeeping together in Snohomish. Their
children pay the bills and assist their parents with their
medical regimens.
I feel so loved and protected, Renee said. Weve
always been a very close family.
But she and Greg also fret about imposing on their
children. Im used to saying to them: What do you
need? Renee said.
Greg and Renee both hope theyll be able to work
again soon. That would be the best possible outcome,
Hockeiser said. We want people to be stable in the
future, and hopefully not need our services, she said.
In the meantime, Hopelink will be there for them.
Former pastors Greg and Renee Wood opened their
hearts to others. Now, Hopelink is assisting them as
they face cancer and unemployment.
Throughout their married life, Greg and Renee Wood have always been
the ones who take care of other people.
As Christian pastors for nearly 20 years, they tended to the spiritual and
temporal needs of their congregation.
As parents, they raised six children of their own while also taking in
dozens of abused youngsters.
As active members of their community, they organized a program to
provide backpacks lled with school supplies for students in need.
So when the Woods found themselves sick, unemployed and on the brink
of being evicted from their home earlier this year, asking for help didnt
come easily to them.
After all, they had coped with misfortune before.
After a lifetime of
giving, its tough to
ask for help
More than 4,000 donations totaling
$1.7 million added up to the most
successful Seattle Times Fund for
the Needy campaign in its 35-year
history. The annual effort benefits
12 Seattle-area nonprofits that
help children, families and seniors in
difficult times including Hopelink.
Thank you to everyone who reached
out to support the Wood family and
the many thousands of others we
serve every year.

Hopelink Campaign to End Summer
Hunger for Kids Launches
This month, Hopelink begins its annual campaign to
support the increasing demand at our food banks during
the summer when free or reduced-fee breakfast and lunch
programs for children at schools are on hiatus.
End Summer Hunger is Hopelinks grassroots campaign
that gathers support of the community from local
businesses, organizations, schools and individuals to help
provide low-income families with food for kids who receive
free and reduced-fee breakfasts and lunches during the
school year. The End Summer Hunger fundraising drive
runs from April through August; donations received go to
offset increasing need at Hopelinks ve emergency service
centers in north and east King County.
Together, we can
End Summer Hunger.

Thank you
The following donors have made gifts of
$1,000 or more during the previous year.
Since 1971, Hopelink has been enriching lives by helping people make lasting change.
None of this would have been possible without the generosity of our supporters.
Hopelink would like to thank and honor the individuals and families who have demon-
strated their dedication to helping others through their leadership gifts.
If those Hopelink programs werent there, I literally dont
know where we would be today. We would be sleeping in our
car, and I do not know where we would have gone after that.
Maria Skenandore.

This publication of our leadership donors recognizes gifts from individuals whose
cash contributions totaled more than $1,000 during 2013. Every effort has been made
to correctly list contributors. If we have your name wrong, or you want to make a
change, please contact Jason Puz at 425.869.7835. We are equally grateful to the many
individuals, businesses and organizations not listed who have also given cash and/or
in-kind contributions to Hopelink over the past year.
Hopelink saved my family and were almost therealmost at
the top. Were ready to move on; ready to move mountains.
Hopelink gave us the learning tools so we do not have to be
homeless again. Renay George
