Do you have time to give? Here are a few ways to turn your hands-on efforts into changed lives.

In addition to food for our Thanksgiving meals throughout King County, we are also assembling food baskets for poor families and families transitioning out of homelessness. Here’s what’s needed most:

  • Turkeys, ham, bacon
  • Canned vegetables
  • Canned fruit
  • Potatoes, onions
  • Oranges
  • Rice & stuffing mix
  • Shelf-stable milk
  • Eggs & butter
  • Canned meats & fish
  • Mayonnaise
  • White & brown sugar
  • Soup

Want to put a smile on someone's face…and food on their table? Feed a family of four for a week! Here's how.

For men and women on the streets, the simple gift of a wool blanket can make a life and death difference. As the weather gets rainier and colder, we want to make sure everyone who spends the night unsheltered has a warm blanket. No one should die just because they aren’t quite ready to come to the Mission yet. Wool keeps you warm, even when it’s wet!

You can buy the exact right kind of blanket at Amazon’s special page for us HERE.

 

Serve on the Search & Rescue Van

Check on the welfare of people hidden away in the coldest part of the night. Invite them to the Mission for warm, safe shelter and breakfast in the morning. Hand out warm blankets, food, hot drinks and other supplies for those who decide not to come into the Mission. Many volunteers serve regularly, and build meaningful relationships that can lead people to trust the Mission and decide to change their lives. More…

Welcome Center Receptionist

Be the face of the Mission to individuals coming in off the street at the Men's Shelter Welcome Center! You'll meet with a variety of guests, providing information, directions to transportation and other resources, clothing, hygiene products, food, etc. This position is needed 24 hours a day for men, 6:00am – 8:00pm for women. We're looking for someone who is comfortable with a variety of people, some of whom may struggle with mental illness or the harshness of homeless life. Your encounter may be the first step for many to make a change for life! More…

Serve the meals you give

Come down and see how a meal really can be the start of a whole new life. We depend on volunteers to personally welcome in our desperate guests and make them feel cared about. Your compassion will help people sense God’s love for them, and can give people comfort and dignity in hard times. Your gift of time can change lives, including your own.

Fighting hunger in Seattle

It starts with a Restaurant

"When you get to serve (Seattle's homeless), it's as if you could say, I see you," says Chad Mackay of El Gaucho.

With help from El Gaucho and AQUA, we now serve 2,200 meals to men, women and children every day!

Once inside, our hungry guests feel the warm smiles, taste the delicious, hot food, and see for themselves the chance for a better life.

Launch OLU

It starts with a T-shirt

Others Like Us (OLU) fashion tells stories that challenge our beliefs and humanize our homeless neighbors.

Wearing OLU isn't a fashion statement. It's a human statement. It brings meaning. It's an effort to connect to others like us.

Shop our online store for T-shirts, hooded sweatshirts and hats to help men, women and children served by the Mission.
