Local Organizations


Elizabeth Gregory Home

What they do: EGH is a day center for homeless women, providing all the amenities of home: food and laundry services, a safe place to sleep, resume and job assistance and, in the very near future, showers.

What they do: Gossett Place provides 62 units of permanent housing for homeless veterans, young adults age 18-25, and other individuals and couples, as well as on-site supportive services for residents, including job training and counseling, a state-of-the-art computer lab and a large community room.


Othello Tiny House Village


lihi.org

What they do: Sponsored by the Low Income Housing Institute, the Othello Tiny House Village is a community of small (96 square feet) houses built for unhoused families and individuals, offering shelters with insulation, electricity, and shared bathroom and shower facilities. In Spring 2016, Christ Church raised funds to build one of these house, with enough funds left over to get over halfway to funding a second house. Christ Church parishoners also participated in the construction of the houses and other amenities for the village.

Operation Nightwatch "Sock It To Homelessness" Sock Drive


seattlenightwatch.org

What they do: Every fall, thousands of new athletic socks are collected by Operation Nightwatch, an interdenominational Christian ministry serving the poor and homeless. The socks are distributed to the homeless at night throughout the rest of the year. In 2014, they collected more than 20,000 pairs of socks. This year, Sock It To Homelessness takes place Nov. 15th.
