The Seattle Mariners have made a catalytic gift that combines emergency funds to bring tenants up to date with the volunteer power of the King County Bar Association to represent them.

How it Works

In most cases last year, eviction was initiated less than one month after a missed rent payment. Home Base provides:

  • One-time emergency funds to pay rent
  • Support of a social worker to connect to other services and develop a long-term plan
  • Volunteer legal representation to help navigate the process

Meet Jodah. After a 3-month hospital stay, the program helped him avoid eviction and stay in his home.

OUR GOAL: Reduce the number of unsheltered people by 50%

When people have access to emergency funds and representation, we all win—tenants stay in their homes, landlords receive their due and there are fewer people living on the streets.

With your support, we can help families avert crisis and stay in their homes.

Ways your support could be acknowledged: Potential mention in neighborhood newspapers and blogs – Potential mention in social media (e.g. Facebook posts and Tweets).
