We're excited to announce a new chapter for Hand in Hand...We are moving!

Our home has been situated in Children’s Village off Casino Road for nine years and is filled with many memories. We are thankful for these memories and for all who have shared them with us. Who we are and what we do will remain the same, but our move will allow us to expand programs and services to serve the community even better.

Through a long-term partnership with Bible Baptist Church, our Safe Place children’s shelter has found a new home. Not far from our current location, Safe place now has an actual home for the kids to stay in. 

“Safe Place is currently housed in a business park environment. 

It has always been the dream to have a home for our community’s most vulnerable children to receive the best care possible. 

This new home will allow us to do that.”– Todd McNeal

As we look to the future in this new home we are exploring the possibility of moving to a staff residential model and allowing for kids to be able stay with us for up to a month if needed. Kids will be able to enjoy a yard, playground and a comfortable home atmosphere.

Our Safe Place shelter will stay in its current location until the Fall of 2019 when we plan to have renovations complete and are able to officially move into its new home.

Hand in Hand administrative offices are also getting a new home. 

At our current location, space for staff is limited. Our new location will provide office space, a desk for every administrative employee as well as conference rooms and training center.

Windermere, our longtime supporter, is leasing this space to us at a reduced rate - allowing us to continue as good financial stewards of our nonprofit organization. We are thankful for their ongoing partnership.

As of June 3rd, Hand in Hand’s new address will be:

9502 19th Ave SE, Suite F  

Everett, WA 98208

Our office phone number will remain the same: 425-374-2461

From this date on, any paperwork, donation drop offs, or meetings with staff members will be held at our new location.

One of our Community Navigators will remain in our current location through Fall 2019, continuing to provide services and allow for a smooth transition.

Transitions and moves always feel bitter sweet. We are thankful for the years we’ve had in our current space and grateful to you for investing your time, energy and donations to make it a community home. It has served its purpose well.

our continued partnership with you.


Emergency Children’s Shelter Finds New Home in Everett

Hand in Hand’s Safe Place Shelter for Children Relocates

(Everett, Washington – April, 30th, 2019) Non Profit, Hand in Hand announced today that they have entered a long-term partnership with Bible Baptist Church which includes a new home for their Safe Place emergency children’s shelter in Everett, Washington.

For a decade, Hand in Hand’s Safe Place shelter has provided quality care and resources for nearly 2,000 children in the greater Snohomish and surrounding counties. Safe Place addresses the immediate needs of children who have been removed from dangerous living situations, providing them shelter, food, hygiene items, medical care, physical and emotional comfort.


Hand in Hand was born from a group of foster parents, social workers and child advocates seeking to make positive systemic changes in how children enter and are cared for in the foster system. At its’ roots Hand in Hand championed change in legislation to make this Safe Place shelter a reality and since then, Safe Place has been replicated in other counties to serve more children in our state.

Hand in Hand Founder, Todd McNeal shared, “Safe Place is currently housed in a business park environment. It has always been the dream to have a home for our community’s most vulnerable children to receive the best care possible. This new home will allow us to do that.”

Now, thanks to community partner, Bible Baptist Church and with the ongoing help of generous supporters, Hand in Hand’s Safe Place will be able to expand to serve even more children in our state.  Hand in Hand is in the process of assessing cost, code and licensing requirements to begin renovations for the successful move of Safe Place into its’ new home.
