In January of 2013, HBP invited Open Hearth into partnership. Open Hearth is a Puyallup based program that helps families on a short term emergency basis. HBP provides administrative and financial services to Open Hearth.
Since 2012 HBP has received grants from the City of Puyallup to be used for homeless prevention. HBP, through its Homeless Prevention program, used those monies to pay housing related bills for families on a one-time-only basis.

Freezing Nights Ministry
In the fall of 2007 HBP partnered with the Freezing Nights program. Participating area churches provide nightly shelter, food and resource information to homeless individuals. The program runs from November through March. HBP plays an advisory and administrative role to the leaders of the Freezing Nights program. This collaboration with the City of Puyallup has enabled families to remain in their homes.

New Hope Resource Center
New Hope Resource Center is a welcoming place for homeless adults, where all guests are treated with respect, and are connected with resources to help them find ways out of their homelessness.
The Center is open year-round to provide refuge and support to homeless guests.
We currently offer community links for job possibilities, mental health, medical access, housing possibilities and clothing resources. Lunches are available daily, except for Sundays, when a mid-day dinner is provided by a local church. Dinner meals are available nearby at the city Armory on weekdays. Dedicated volunteers provide help, encouragement and friendship each day.
