What we do

With your support, we can partner with the most effective nonprofits across King County to reach the most people in need with programs that work.

It shouldn’t happen, period. But when it does happen due to crisis, we’re there with housing and jobs so people get back on their feet quickly.

Helping Students Graduate

Kids are falling behind. We support parents, help pre-K kids prep for the first day, and help students get back on track after major struggles or dropping out.
