Yvonne’s first day at Sophia Place Day Center

Yvonne came to our Day Center on her first day of experiencing homelessness. The staff helped her get in touch with an emergency shelter in Seattle and reserve a bed for the night. After eating lunch, Yvonne was given directions and bus tickets so she could get to the shelter. A little later, she called as she needed assistance navigating the Seattle bus tunnels, and the staff directed her to the correct bus that would take her to the shelter.
