Queen Anne Helpline

Queen Anne Helpline prevents homelessness and stabilizes the lives of neighbors in need through financial and supportive services. Queen Anne Helpline was formed in 1982 after a local grocery store owner realized that many seniors were buying pet food to eat because it was all they could afford. He teamed up with other community leaders to establish the Queen Anne Helpline, a neighborhood model that proved so successful six other Helplines were established around the city. By providing financial and other basic needs assistance to residents of the Queen Anne, Magnolia, and South Lake Union neighborhoods, the Helpline ensures that several thousand people annually have secure housing, are able to pay their utility bills, and have adequate food and clothing.
