Michelle – a mom to four young girls – was living in a tent at a free campsite with no facilities. Her husband recently moved the family to King County so he could take a new job. With their poor credit, the family couldn’t find an affordable apartment that would rent to them during the pandemic. And the family shelters were all full. But thanks to generous donors, we brought Michelle’s family in from the cold. Our vehicle outreach specialist, who supports all people living in cars and on the streets, found them housing, paid the deposit, and helped them settle in with furniture and groceries. Now the kids can attend online school and the family is thriving!

With a harsh winter predicted, we have to be ready to keep more women safe, warm, and dry. That’s why we’re raising $15,000 for Giving Tuesday and your gift will be matched by a group of generous donors. Will you make a much-needed gift to The Sophia Way?
