A lesson in living
Karie Stearns, Case Manager and Pathways Coordinator,
reflects on her five years of direct service experience
at The Sophia Way and what keeps her going.
Nemo becomes a citizen
One of our companion recounts Nemo's story of
perseverence. Nemo felt herself to be very lucky to have
a job, because she was not a citizen, her English was
poor, and she could not read or write. Her overriding
concern was to get her citizenship.
Changing lives, one woman at a time
If you are inspired by Nemo's story, consider
volunteering as a companion for one of our clients.
Often, all it takes to make a difference in someone's
life is to be available, accepting, and a good listener.

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.
