We collaborate with select partner organizations in the community that help seniors get, and stay, housed.
The Lewith Trust established a partnership with The Seattle Foundation to deepen its knowledge and engagement with the community of innovators creating solutions for housing and financial security for low-income seniors of King County.
We have established a Donor Advised Fund at the Seattle Foundation in addition to participating in collective efforts to address the most pressing issues affecting low-income seniors in the diverse communities of King County.
At The Sophia Way, our vision is of a community where all women have a place to call home. The women who seek support are in survival mode. Our two shelters and the day center offer them a warm, safe space to take a shower, rest, and sleep, and nourishing food to give them strength.
Case managers focus on their physical, mental, and financial well-being. They partner with women, asking and understanding how best to support them in their journey towards stable living.
We serve nearly a hundred women every day through our programs. Since 2008, we have supported more than 5,000 women and helped many to move into housing.
Our Sister Organizations
Established in 2019, Housing Connector is an innovative program that connects private property owners and managers with individuals in need of affordable rentals. Through the Housing Connector platform, property listings are matched with referrals through non-profit organizations for potential residents who often have little access to the rental market through traditional application processes.
For more than 50 years, Byrd Barr Place (originally known as the Central Area Motivation Program) has provided Seattle residents with basic human needs--a warm home, food on the table, and immediate financial relief--so they can break the cycle of poverty and build self-sufficiency. Programs include housing and energy assistance; a food bank; personal financial resources with special attention to emergency situations regarding utilities and housing security.
We are always looking for opportunities to place our energy and financial resources into new partnerships.
