I am extremely pleased to share very exciting news!
The Sophia Way is taking two large steps forward in advancing our mission:
1) We are extending our Emergency Winter Shelter for women,
children and families for more than two months until the end of May
2) We are taking over the operations of the Angeline's Day Center at Sophia's Place
from our longstanding partner, the YWCA.
These events provide an incredible opportunity to extend our support for women
experiencing homelessness in East King County. Please know that you, our community partners,
share in this growth, success and opportunity. [More]
Introducing the Day Center at Sophia's Place
Beginning April 1st we took over the operations of the day center
serving up to 40 women each day, Monday through Friday.
The program includes two hot meals, shower and laundry facilities,
a comfortable place to rest, computer and phone access,
and additional resources which include nursing and dental services.
The Day Center provides a great volunteer opportunity to work directly
with many of the women we serve. We will provide a required
specialized training for all volunteers interested in helping
at our Day Center. You can assist by sharing your
skills—computer skills, gardening, knitting, arts and crafts and more.
We are looking for volunteers who can commit at least once a week
for two to five hours between the hours of 8:00 am and 1:00 pm,
Monday through Friday. If you are interested in learning more
about this opportunity contact Nicole at email@example.com
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.
