The E-Net is a network of community churches and service providers, who have come together to communi-cate more effectively with one another in order to best serve those who come to them for benevolence assist-ance. NW Hope-Net administrates this network, facilitating communication between all parties. By working together, we are able to advocate on behalf of clients, identify abusive, fraudulent, or illegitimate requests, reduce duplication, share information, & collaborate on special needs cases.
The staff at NW Hope-Net is experienced, professional, courteous and efficient at every level of compassionate outreach. We take care to provide our clients with caring, compassionate, effective responses to their needs. Additionally, we provide screening and case management services to area churches who are also in the business of ministering to people in need in their own communities.
NW Hope-Net operates as a clearinghouse, connecting people who have needs with others to help meet those needs. We offer caring, compassionate, faith-based referrals to everyone who calls, regardless of their circumstances. We also offer case management services to area churches. We often find solutions by working within the E-Net, and we frequently facilitate multi-agency collaborations for some of our more complicated case management scenarios. NW Hope-Net does not promote church welfare, but rather, we look for solutions that help people regain their hope, their dignity, and their own self-reliance.
The "Eastside Holiday Network” is a group of schools, organizations, churches, and businesses who are active in holiday giving. We have formed a network of service providers for the purpose of increasing inter-agency communications - and thus reducing duplication of services - so that the limited holiday resources can be distributed as widely as possible.
If you have any questions concerning
the scope of our services, our service boundaries, or anything else, please don't hesitate to contact us. Our
staff will help find the best
solutions for your needs.
"Helping The Poor At Your Door" Brown Bag Seminar
The couple with the new baby, needing rent money … The single mom, asking for gas money … The young man who wants a motel voucher … The call for grocery money …
WHOM do you help? WHOM do you turn away? HOW do you decide?
This 2-hour Workshop is designed for Pastors, church secretaries and other staff members, who are approached by unknown folks who drop into the church, requesting financial assistance – often at very busy times. The Workshop materials address the challenges that these requests present to all who desire to show Christ’s love, yet who also desire to be good stewards of His resources. We will come to your office during the lunch hour, and while your staff are eating their lunch we will present this powerful workshop.
