The Sophia Way's mission is to help end homelessness for adult women in King County by providing shelter, life skills training, social services, and supportive permanent housing offering a path from homelessness to stable, independent living.

Since we opened our doors in 2008, more than 3,000 women have sought shelter and support from The Sophia Way, and we have been able to help many of them move into their own home.

We believe in the necessity of shelter and safe living conditions for all women. We know how to alleviate the pain experienced every day by so many single adult women living the nightmare of homelessness. And we know how to help them begin to lessen the trauma that continually haunts them. Equally important, we know how to leverage all available resources to help find and place as many of these women into housing as we can.

We are now working with a best practice model called "Housing First" - an evidence-based approach that is helping us successfully house significantly more women each year.

In 2017 we were able to get 125 women into housing - an increase of 400% over 2016. We also had a 62% increase in the number of women served at our Day Center, 22% increase in the number of women at our 6-month shelter program, and 71% increase in the number of women served at our Emergency Winter Shelter.

With your support, we will help many more women make their journey to stability and independence.
Thank you to The Hayes Family Fund who have generously offered to match up to $10,000 of donations received on GiveBIG - a unique opportunity we want to leverage to stretch our dollars even further and be able to place more women into housing.
