Community Ministries

Hellgate High School and Parenting Place 

Thank you for exploring opportunities to get involved with Hellgate High School and the Parenting Place!

We ask that all our Community Ministry volunteers complete the Safeguarding God’s Children online education and a background check with the Diocese.  Please contact Jill Sallin at to ready yourself to serve! 

At Hellgate in 2017-18, 72 students were identified as homeless (McKinney Vento Act).  30-35% of Hellgate students qualify for free and reduced meals.  A growing number of refugee students are a part of the Hellgate school community.

Opportunities with Hellgate High School and their Family Resource Center (FRC):

  • Help with the end-of-the-school-year organizing of the FRC
  • Contact A’Lisa Scott at with your questions and ideas


Opportunities with The Parenting Place, 1644 S 8th St W:
