Homelessness crisis in King County

Behind the troubling headlines about the state of emergency regarding homelessness and the rising numbers from the One Night Count of homeless in King County, there are stories of men, women, and children who are struggling to transform their lives in this city. 

We know them by name. Men and women struggling with addiction and kids at risk of hunger and at times even violence have stories to tell that go deeper than any statistic can.

But a community powered by Christ's relentless redeeming love searches for those in the darkest places. With embracing arms we offer a path to discover fullness of life as they take their courageous first steps into freedom. We, together, can showcase love on such an impactful level that all will take notice.

Responding with relentless redeeming love

We invite you to join us for our 7th Annual Catalyst Gala dinner and auction! This unique Seattle event offers you a transforming experience surrounded by a passionate community willing to help others in transformational love.

Catalyst 2016

Join auctioneer John Curley, host of Q it Up Sports Aaron Levine and other Seattle community leaders for an opportunity to change lives. Come for a fun-filled evening with inspirational stories you won’t forget.

We choose to face the rising challenges with love. Won't you join us?
