Celebrating 50 Years Serving our Community

Celebrating 50 Years Serving our Community

A Special Message from SHARE’s Board Chair and CEO:

In 2022, SHARE is celebrating its 50th anniversary serving the TriCities community! On behalf of SHARE’s Board of Directors, and the entire SHARE team, we thank you for your ongoing support throughout SHARE’s history. While the TriCities have changed greatly over the past 50 years, SHARE’s mission to support people during times of vulnerability has remained steady.

Today, our community faces the devastating consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic, coupled with an ongoing affordable housing crisis, and tainted drug supply/opioid crisis. We see more seniors struggling for a safe and secure place to live, more families unable to put food on the table, and mental health concerns rising across all demographics of our community. The TriCities continues to be a place that welcomes newcomers and refugees, many of whom are fleeing unthinkable atrocities and trauma. Your help is needed now, more than ever.

SHARE has been there for our community the past 50 years, and with your support, we promise to be here for the next 50 years too. We welcome everyone to join the celebration of our 50th anniversary in one form or another, and thank you for your ongoing support of SHARE, and our community.
