Welcome to The Sophia Way

The Sophia Way, located in downtown Bellevue, Washington, is the only staffed shelter for homeless adult women in King County. We offer the tools, guidance, and housing that homeless women need to make sustainable changes in their lives. Supported by the community and local municipalities, we are serving those women who were falling through the cracks of the social services programs.

We believe in the necessity of shelter and safe living 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 in the equality of all, cherishing diversity, and treating each person we meet—client, volunteer, donor, staff—with the same respect, dignity, and care.

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 ten year plan.
