Welcome to The Sophia Way

The Sophia Way (TSW) provides the Eastside’s only program exclusively dedicated to helping end homelessness for adult women in King County by offering a path from homelessness to stable independent living. TSW’s core programs facilitate this transition by providing a safe place for women during the day, offering a six-month intensive shelter program for twenty one women at night, offering case management to help clients overcome barriers to independence, and providing transitional and non-time limited housing opportunities for women who experience chronic homelessness.

The Sophia Way started its journey, under the leadership of Helen Leuzzi, in December of 2008 in partnership with YWCA, Bellevue First Congregational Church, and Eastside Interfaith Social Concerns Council (EISCC). You can learn more about our history here.

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.
