Redmond Donor Recognition

In recent years, Hopelink’s Campaign for Lasting Change has provided the funds to renovate our housing units in Kenmore to house more families in need. The Campaign has also brought about the building of a new service center in Shoreline that is already serving more people in the area. The next major step of the campaign is nearing completion, and there is still time for you to be a part of this amazing transformation in our community.

The new Redmond Service Center will house both a food bank and staff offering programs that help people exit poverty. It will also house Hopelink’s administrative staff. The center is set to open in August, and as construction hurries along, we are finalizing our recognition of those who have generously given to the campaign in order to make it all happen.

Over the past few years, community members like you have come together in a remarkable way to help shape Hopelink’s future; raising $18.4 million toward our $20 million Phase I goal.

The courtyard entryway to the Redmond center will feature a stunning, permanent bronze display inspired by the Emily Dickinson poem, “’Hope’ is the thing with feathers.” Designed by Judith and Daniel Caldwell at
Caldwell Sculpture Studio, the river of feathers and medallions will include the word “hope” in the many languages spoken by Hopelink clients, as well as the names of many who are helping us build this center.

Please plan to join us August 3, as we officially open the doors to our new Redmond center!

“Hope” is the thing with feathers - (314)


“Hope” is the thing with feathers -
That perches in the soul -
And sings the tune without the words -
And never stops - at all -


And sweetest - in the Gale - is heard -
And sore must be the storm -
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm -


I’ve heard it in the chillest land -
And on the strangest Sea -
Yet - never - in Extremity,
It asked a crumb - of me.


Emily Dickinson
