Help the Tillamook Shelter Get Windows!

We have already received donations for several windows, which will complete one side of the building and part of the next side.

But we still need about 75 more!

The cost per window is $1,085. Options to consider:

​    1.  Personally pledge a window.

​    2.  Pledge a window in honor of a loved one.

​    3.  Find 4 friends to go in together to pledge a window. 

​    4.  Collect donations among your friends and

           co-workers toward the cost of a window.

​    5.  Hold a car wash or other fundraiser to go toward

           the cost of a window.

    6.  Pledge any amount toward the cost of a window.


Our mission at Helping Hands Re-entry Outreach Centers is to provide a safe place for anyone to receive services needed to create a sustainable life and become productive members of society. 

Helping Hands Re-entry Outreach Centers
