The Issue: Homelessness in Seattle Area

In January 2013, the Seattle/King County Coalition on Homelessness organized the 33rd annual One Night Count to determine how many people in King County were living without shelter. During a three-hour street count, the group of 800 volunteers found nearly 3,000 men, women, and children curled up under bridges or in doorways, riding the bus for shelter, or trying to live out of their cars. This was a 5% increase from the previous year's count.

The Campaign: Providing Those in Need with Healthy Food

All donations to this Grassroots campaign will be used by Heroes for the Homeless to supply individuals experiencing homelessness in the Seattle area with nutritious food, hygiene supplies, and socks. Every $35 raised will be used to provide these supplies to one individual; for every $350 raised, Heroes for the Homeless can provide supplies to 10 people experiencing homelessness.

Heroes for the Homeless

Heroes for the Homeless's all-volunteer staff provides individuals experiencing homelessness in the Seattle Metropolitan area with emergency services and survival supplies. They do so without expectation or cost, and regardless of age, race, and physical or mental capabilities. All they require is that clients be willing to accept assistance. Each month, the outreach team travels by car and by foot to supply emergency services for up to 650 individuals and their pets—with each volunteer serving a minimum of six months in order to build rapport with clients. Since its founding in 2006, the organization has served more than 51,000 sandwiches/meals and distributed more than 11,000 pairs of socks—the most requested item from clients due to limited access to laundry services.
