LYNNWOOD, WA (November 14, 2011) – Lynnwood Rotary Club, in cooperation with Rotary District 5030 presented a $10,000 donation to Housing Hope at a meeting on November 3, 2011 at Edmonds Community College.   Ed Peterson, Executive Director of Housing Hope received the check from Lynnwood Rotary President Stan McKenzie, joined by Rotarians Lisa Gallucci and Andrew Ballard who made significant contributions to secure the $10, 000 gift.

Housing Hope currently manages 312 units in eighteen housing developments, and has helped 228 families build and own their own homes.   Housing Hope offers a full range of affordable housing options throughout Snohomish County and has a satellite office in Lynnwood.   They provide housing services including emergency shelter, transitional housing, affordable-rent units and homeownership opportunities.   Housing Hope focuses its activities on Snohomish County and Camano Island, collaborating and cooperating with local communities to make sure programs address the needs of local residents with the lowest incomes and the greatest need.  They additionally fund child development programs for children—Tomorrow’s Hope Childcare Center, special needs assessment, a school liaison program, and individualized attention by a child specialist.

The $10,000 donation will be used to support the College of Hope in Lynnwood, which is an adult-education learning program that focuses on life skills in four areas: Family Life, Economic Well-Being, Health and Wellness and Housing Expertise.
