As one of the most diverse zip codes in the country, 98118 is also home to many Seattle gangs. Through 118 Designs, we seek to give 13-26 year-old men a place where they belong and can find hope for a better future.
In our wood shop, these young men learn carpentry and foster entrepreneurial drive. Our builders are part of a long-term discipleship program as they craft quality, urban-inspired furniture from broken and discarded wood.
Our 118 Designs program offers:
- Technical job skills training
- Workplace environment education
- Business and entrepreneurial classes
- Leadership and role model opportunities
- Mentors and counseling services
- Accountability and drug testing
- Bible studies
We strategically partner with a green home builder in Seattle to utilize salvaged lumber in our projects. Beautiful things are coming out of our efforts, giving new life to what was once deemed worthless.
