Together, we're building a community where...
People Have Homes

Homelessness Awareness Month
This November, join the movement to #StandAgainstHomelessness.
Check out our blog to learn what’s working in the middle of this crisis.
We bring caring people together to give, volunteer, and take action to help people in need and solve our community’s toughest challenges.
94% of every dollar donated goes to meet community needs
We’re talking serious results like children who participate in our Parent-Child Home Program with their parents are 30% more likely to graduate high school. The programs and organizations we invest in are putting up big numbers and having real impact.
It’s everything from winning large grants like half a million dollars to put more hundreds of AmeriCorp and VISTAs to work in the community, to utilizing $10 million state dollars in the last two years to get high school dropouts back on track.
We invest in solutions that go to the root of the issue and work toward sustainable changes. This looks like programs and nonprofits who are advocating in Olympia for policy change, or at the school district, city or county level. A recent win was extending the age that youth leave the foster care system from 18 to 21 in order to reduce the number of youth existing foster care and entering homelessness.
The work we’re doing and investing in has to have reach. Reach like providing 600,000 free summer meals at more than 250 sites throughout King County to ease the burden on families who receive free and reduced priced lunches during the school year. We have to be able to make the solutions work for hundreds, if not thousands. Why? Because Seattle is growing at unprecedented rates and becoming unlivable for many.
