Sophia's Thrift Shoppe is Closing
After almost nine months of operations, Sophia's Thrift Shoppe is closing.
It was a very difficult decision for us to make, especially given the amount
of effort it took for it to become operational. However, we believe this is
the right decision for us at this time. While the business model was

Meals for the Winter Shelter
Our Emergency Winter Shelter for women and children opened
on November 15—just in time for the freezing temperatures
to arrive. This is a "low-barrier" shelter, where women and
children can find a warm place to spend the night. We'd like

Welcome to The Sophia Way
The Sophia Way, located in downtown Bellevue, Washington,
is the only staffed shelter for homeless adult women in
King County. We offer the tools, guidance, and housing that
homeless women need to make sustainable changes in their
lives. Supported by the community and local municipalities,
we are serving those women who were falling through the
cracks of the social services programs.
We believe in the necessity of shelter and safe living
conditions for all persons. Our goal is to address this
fundamental need of citizens of our community and improve
the quality of life of adult homeless women. We believe
in the equality of all, cherishing diversity, and treating
each person we meet—client, volunteer, donor, staff—with
the same respect, dignity, and care.
We are committed to providing every woman with the opportunity
to live independently and move into permanent housing. The
Sophia Way is partnering with the community to achieve the
shared goal of ending homelessness as part of King County's
ten year plan.
