conditions for all persons. Our goal is to address this
fundamental need of citizens of our community and improve
the quality of life of adult homeless women. We believe

We are committed to providing every woman with the opportunity
to live independently and move into permanent housing. The
Sophia Way is partnering with the community to achieve the
shared goal of ending homelessness as part of King County's
