Please join us at the 23rd annual Voices of Hope Concert April 28 at 2 p.m. at Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church. The concert will feature choirs from Our Saviour’s, St. Cecilia Catholic Church, Stanwood High School, Mt. Vernon Christian School, and the Beachwood Boys from the Warm  Beach Senior Community. This is an excellent opportunity to learn more about Housing Hope and its impact in our community. There will also  be Bake Sale tables filled with yummy treats, and a Silent Auction featuring unique and creative gift baskets sure to appeal to all! All proceeds  from the concert, bake sale, and silent auction will be used to support the homeless and low-income families of Lervick Family Village and  Lincoln Hill Family Village here in Stanwood.
If you would like to donate something for the auction please contact The Stanwood Ambassadors  for Housing Hope, Dee Jonson (Ljonson@aol.com) or Wendy Lervick (wendylervick@hotmail.com). Donated baked items are encouraged and may  be left in the church kitchen that morning. All items will be available for viewing and bidding during coffee hour April 28.


Housing Hope is an agency that works with homeless families–serving only Snohomish County and Camano Island. It strives to make every community a quality place to live for households with incomes at all levels of the economic continuum. Following years of planning and development, beginning in 1987, Stanwood is testimony to this relentless pursuit as the first city in Snohomish County to have a full service enriched housing continuum.


The services include one emergency unit for homeless families and thirty-eight more units–transitional units for homeless families and affordable units for low income families at Lervick Village and Lincoln Hill. Fifty-five affordable home ownership units are owned by low-income families who were taught how to build their homes. Education, childcare, and occupational training are also offered at the Stanwood housing units. Stanwood’s Ambassador group supports the pantries and provides other assistance to the residents of our units here.

Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church members are very active with the Ambassador program and supportive of Housing Hope by donation, participation in the annual Voices of Hope Concert fundraiser, pantry drives and more.  For more information on Housing Hope and how to get involved, contact Dee Jonson at 360-652-7112, or Carol Jensen at 425-422-2244, or click HERE to go to their website.
