If you are looking for a brief overview about The Sophia Way and our logo for your bulletin, report, or promotional material, please use the following:
The mission of The Sophia Way is to help end homelessness for adult women in King County by providing shelter, life skills training, social services and supportive permanent housing, offering a path from homelessness to stable independent living.
The Sophia Way is the Eastside’s only program exclusively dedicated to helping end homelessness for single adult women in King County. With the encouragement and support of the Eastside Homelessness Advisory Council and the expertise and mentorship of our partner Congregations for the Homeless, The Sophia Way has served hundreds of women with support services. Our staff interacts with each woman personally, and responds and provides resources customized to her needs and situation.
At our Day Center we provide some immediate services and facilities such as nourishing meals, laundry, showers, computers, phones, counselling and resource referrals.
We offer a 6-month shelter program at Sophia’s Place (our 21-bed night shelter), and during winter, shelter at nights at the Emergency Winter Shelter.
Our goal is to help women move from temporary shelter to transitional/permanent housing as soon as possible. We offer two housing programs: Holly House (a community residence) and Sophia’s Home.
Our case managers help women create and reach personal goals that lead to independent living.
We help women acquire new life skills, access needed resources and find tools to successfully move towards independent stable living.
