Please join us for our Annual Benefit Luncheon: October 11 at Meydenbauer Center.
This year we will offer a unique and interactive experience using the facilitation skills of two professional comedians. Our goal, through laughter and storytelling, is to provide an experience that will energize our guests in seeing a different way to frame the story of homelessness and then challenge them to share with others a more positive and human story from which all can relate. 

Key Facilitator: Ashley Nicole Black, an Emmy award-winning comedian, actress, and writer and writer and correspondent on TBS’ Full Frontal with Samantha Bee. Outside of her work in comedy, she is a passionate supporter of animal rights and social justice movements.

Co-facilitator: John Keister, a Seattle-based comedian, writer, commentator and motivational speaker. A Seattle native, Keister has produced, written, and starred in several comedy and news shows for KING-TV, including the popular  Almost Live! from 1988-1999.

Partner-In-Laughter: The Syndrome Magazine, a nonprofit organization based in Bellevue, WA, with an online magazine that uses humor and satire to create awareness of gender equality issues and empower women.

A Home Of Her Own!
When Kathy* moved into her new home, The Sophia Way board and staff received an email: “I did a move-in recently and wanted to send some photos to you! This is Kathy’s new bedroom, which has many items provided by us, including the bed frame and the quilt. The mattress and dresser are from recent donors! You all are amazing! Keep up the wonderful work!”
For Gretchen Phillips-Bond, housing case manager at The Sophia Way and Kathy’s case manager it was a moment to celebrate.

On The Job With Chantal Namuhoza
Most days Chantal will go home feeling like “there is more I could have done to help someone.” Understand and accepting that she can’t help everyone has been a big learning for her. Another learning has been the ability to make quick decisions.

Chantal Namuhoza is Day Center staff at Sophia's Place.

Thank you, Microsoft Azure team, for developing a client information portal for The Sophia Way. The portal will be able to capture all data about the women who visit our shelter so that we can better serve them. This initiative was part of the Microsoft Hackathon this year.
