Peninsula Home Fund
CHANGE SOMEONE’S LIFE
Now in its 34th year, the Peninsula Home Fund is a safety net for children, teens, families, and the elderly in Jefferson and Clallam counties – from Forks to Port Townsend, Quilcene and Brinnon to LaPush – when they face emergency situations and can’t find help elsewhere.
Each year the fund aids more area residents with their emergency needs, ranging from medicine and clothing through food and utilities to vocational and education fees, as well as deposits for safe, drug-free shelter and electricity.
It is because of generous people like you that the North Olympic Peninsula is such a great place to live. Thank you again for being such a good neighbor.
I have to say, if it wasn’t for OlyCAP and its emergency funding programs… my son and myself would NOT have been able to survive here.
I couldn’t state this fact loud enough – that the Olympic Community Action Programs are the heart and soul of caring in Jefferson County and with their help, not only is my son well on his way to being successful in life, but I have been able to thrive and continue to live in Jefferson County due solely to the help we’ve received from OlyCAP.
