BelRed Family Resource Center
Serving Eastside homeless women and children, starting Spring 2018.
The BelRed Family Resource Center provides a safe, healing, and transformative environment through the love of Jesus, where women with children on the Eastside are served on their journey out of homelessness.
BelRed Family Resource Center will provide daytime services and overnight shelter for women with children experiencing homelessness. Services include meals, showers, hygiene items, clothing, case management, housing referrals, job search support, computer access, mail service, children's activities, tutoring, and school support. Please note, a phone screen is required for guests seeking services.
Featured community partners
The BelRed Family Resource Center is fully funded by individual donors from Evangelical Chinese Church and Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission, and supported by Creekside Covenant Church and Westminster Chapel.
Evangelical Chinese Church (ECC) was formed in 1967 with a vision to provide fellowship and witness for the Lord to new Mandarin-speaking Chinese immigrants settling in the Greater Seattle area. Since then the Lord has really blessed ECC, now a multi-generational, multi-language (Mandarin, Cantonese, and English) and multi-campus church with locations in Seattle and Redmond along with church plants in Snohomish, South King County, and Tacoma. The goal of ECC is to help people grow and mature in their faith in God, to share God’s love to those around us, and to be a blessing to others in our community and in the world.
Creekside Covenant Church (Creekside) was planted in 1999 with the hope of being a congregation that wasn’t just in the community but for the community. Creekside’s deep care and concern for people, especially the most vulnerable, is born from their interaction with a God who loves His people, and has sent Creekside on a mission to uphold the dignity of all humans regardless of circumstance. Creekside counts it a privilege to be “mission friends” with community partners that share their commitment to serving the Eastside.
Westminster Chapel has consistently responded to the challenges of Bellevue's growth as a dynamic urban center of the Pacific Northwest. The church believes that as they grow in loving God and others authentically, they will help bring compassion and justice to those whose voices are diminished. Westminster has served in partnership with Congregations for the Homeless as a host site for their rotating shelter for over 10 years. They are committed to reach beyond themselves to impact one life, a family, or issue in the community with God's transforming love.
