"Do good and good will follow you.”
Our community has always been good to us. And on GiveBIG more than 80 generous donors stepped up and gave BIG, helping us r aise over $30,000!

We are ever so grateful to Hayes Family Fund who have been supporting us for many years with $10,000 in matching funds!

Thank you for your support that helps us serve the growing number of women seeking shelter on the Eastside. With your donations, we get women off the street, out of shelters and into their own homes. You have given them the gift of safety and stability, and the opportunity to live life with dignity and respect.

With gratitude,
Alisa Chatinsky
Interim Executive Director

P.S. If you didn't have the opportunity to donate on GiveBIG, please donate now to support women experiencing homelessness in our community.
