The Sophia Way | The Sophia Way
The Sophia Way is dedicated to helping end homelessness for single adult women in King County. We help them transition from homelessness to stable independent living by offering them critical resources that they need to start a new life -- shelter, safety and stability.

Every act of generosity counts!

With your help:

43 women found housing through our Day Center

34 women were housed from Sophia’s Place

2 women were housed through our new Outreach Program

1 woman was housed from the Emergency Winter Shelter

2 women moved to permanent housing from Holly House

3 women moved to permanent, independent housing from Rental Assistance Program (RAP)


Help us raise $5,000 this #GivingTuesday on November 28

Your #GivingTuesday gift will empower us to build on the great work we’ve accomplished so far this year.

85 women have been housed – a 254% increase from last year

We’ve increased our Day Center capacity by 85% in the last two years and are serving more women now than ever before.

We are able to get more women into housing because of our flexible funding provided through our Rosco Fund – a private donor fund.

Please help us get more women into housing by donating today!
