Since 1971, Hopelink has served homeless and low income families, children, seniors and people with disabilities. Hopelink's mission is to promote self-sufficiency for all members of our community; we help people make lasting change. Hopelink emergency service centers are located in Bellevue, Kirkland/Northshore, Redmond, Shoreline and Sno-Valley.
The Hartman Group has provided Hopelink with an assessment of community needs and perceptions of various external stakeholder groups (local NGOs working with hunger, recipients of hunger-related services and members of the local constituency) in the King County area. The project goal was to develop messaging and communication strategies that will increase overall community engagement and motivate action at the individual level to end hunger. As a company, The Hartman Group has also participated in holiday toy drives, collected food donations and volunteered time at food-sorting events.
Coyote Central recruits professionals from creative fields to share their skills and inspiration with adolescents. Middle-school youth of every ethnic and economic background work with professional artists, chefs, filmmakers, dancers, metalworkers, animators and more, tackling hands-on projects in apprenticeship settings. Adolescence is a crucial age for building problem-solving and creative thinking skills, and a pivotal moment for adolescents to figure out who they are and what they want to do in the world. Coyote opens up a world of possibilities to young minds.
The Hartman Group provides financial support for Coyote Central's youth education program and has also volunteered time by working on the Coyote Central Garden Project.
Treehouse is uniquely committed to improving the lives of our kids living in foster care. No other agency in our region responds to the needs of our foster children like Treehouse.
Since 1988, Treehouse has filled the gaps for kids in foster care, providing services that no other agency addresses: money for extra-curricular activities and summer camp, professional educational support services, resources to fully participate in the everyday activities of growing up, clothing and supplies to help them fit in at school.
The Hartman Group conducted research to assist Treehouse in building a strategic plan to improve the high school graduation rate of local foster youth. As a company, The Hartman Group volunteers time at warehouse clothing-sorting events, sponsors school supplies and clothing donations throughout the year and supports volunteer activities through our volunteer paid-time-off program.
Washington Trails Association believes that hiking trails are our link to wilderness. WTA protects hiking trails and wild lands, takes volunteers out to maintain trails and promotes hiking as a healthy, fun way to explore the outdoors. WTA's mission is to preserve, enhance and promote hiking opportunities in Washington state through collaboration, education, advocacy and volunteer trail maintenance.
The Hartman Group volunteered time to maintain and clear a portion of a trail in Soaring Eagle Regional Park in Sammamish, Washington.
Kindering, a not-for-profit neurodevelopmental center, has been providing comprehensive services for children with special needs and their families since 1962. Kindering is the only early intervention center serving urban East King County. It is the largest intervention center in Washington state, one of the three largest centers in the nation and notably the most comprehensive. At Kindering, infants and toddlers ages birth to three receive critical physical and occupational therapy, speech-language therapy, feeding therapy, special education and other early intervention programming aimed at helping children with special needs reach developmental milestones. In addition, Kindering supports the entire family with comprehensive programs, such as support groups like Mothers Circle, Fathers Network and Sibshops, kinship and foster care programming, parent education and a true sense of community for those facing the unexpected journey of raising a child with special needs.
The Hartman Group recently volunteered at Kindering to help prepare for their annual auction by constructing decorations and other arts and crafts for their event.
