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.

Because the numbers are growing

Our Day Center is now open all seven days and on any given day we may have 50 women, and more, needing basic life-saving services (food, shelter, safety). Your donation will allow us to provide greater access to necessities that build a strong foundation for living.

Because you can play a vital role

The average age of women in our program is 55 years. They are mothers, grandmothers, sisters, aunts, and our neighbors, who are a part of the vibrant Eastside community. Your gift of a meal will nourish them and help them rebuild their confidence and live with dignity.

Because you can do good

We are committed to helping women get back on their feet with both dignity and respect. With your help, we are addressing extraordinary challenges with unique solutions. We are are extremely grateful for your time and support in helping us serve the growing number of women at our shelter.
