Our vision is a healthy, vibrant community, for all who live there. One in which people want to live and be engaged with one another and feel they are a part of the community.
Our mission is to build relationships with people experiencing poverty in North Snohomish County while meeting basic human needs through charitable outreach. Connecting and navigating people to other resources in our community.
We hold firm our vision and mission. We are flexible in our programming based on the needs of the community.
Laundry outreach, our core program, is designed to build relationships with those we serve over time through regular attendance. We do not ask for proof of poverty, homelessness, or financial need. We ask that all guests sign an expectation sheet, sign in each week they attend, wear a name tag, and be respectful. One benefit for those experiencing homelessness is our ability to verify homelessness that may help qualify them for a housing program.
