The women at our shelter and housing are always in need of clothing and essential supplies. We are happy to accept your donations that are in ‘new’ or ‘gently used’ condition. We are not comfortable giving clients donations that are stained or excessively worn. Because of our small space, we are unable to accept donations larger than two grocery bags without prior arrangement. For larger donations, please contact us. We do not accept furniture. If you have furniture to donate, please consider donating to Home2Home. They accept and distribute like-new furniture to economically challenged families on the Eastside.
Please drop off your donations at:
Place: Sophia’s Place (behind St. Luke’s Lutheran Church), 3032 Bellevue Way NE Bellevue, WA 98004
Time: All days: 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Weekdays only: 4:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Most of our clients rely on the Metro bus system to get to their appointments, job interviews, and back and forth to our shelter.
When residents of King County renew their car tabs, they have the option of requesting eight King County Metro Transit tickets.
If you live in King County and are renewing your car tabs, please consider requesting the eight tickets and donating them to our program. Our shelter workers report that these tickets are very popular and very appreciated by our clients. Please off the tickets at our office or mail them to us at our address.
