Welcome Our Executive Team!

Dear Friends,

It’s a new beginning at The Sophia Way as we take our initial steps in collaborating as the Executive Team.

A robust foundation has been laid through The Sophia Way Forward with the support of the Board, past CEO Alisa Chatinsky, and many community members. The possibilities are endless and the future is bright for the organization.

As we look ahead, we are committed to developing a robust mental health program that will support each woman and provide them with various resources to enable their journey to safety and stability. With the support of partners, we are determined to find new housing options that meet women where they are and embrace them to be a part of the community.

There is much work to be done over the next 100 days to ensure the success of our distributed leadership model. We are working closely with the Board and engaging with you, our community of supporters, to build the systems and processes needed for this model to succeed for The Sophia Way. We hope it will serve as a model for other nonprofit organizations. Thank you for your understanding and for giving us grace during this transition period.

The Sophia Way is poised to continue to grow and excel as a leader in providing shelter, safety, and stability for women experiencing homelessness on the Eastside. We are grateful for your generosity in supporting our vision and mission.

In grateful service,
