Help us raise $30,000 for our 30 years! Actually, let’s raise $30,000 twice: the Wyncote Foundation NW has generously agreed to match up to $30,000 in donations in honor of our anniversary! LIHI GiveBig fundraising supports Tiny House Villages and Urban Rest Stops. Ways to GiveBIG:
DreamBig! — 600 Tiny Houses
Tiny Houses serve populations that are not served well by traditional shelter options, including families, couples, and people with pets. Tiny houses are preferred and accepted as shelter by many people who refuse space in other shelters. Why? Because in a tiny house village you get a house to yourself with a lockable door. You get privacy and your possessions are safe. A high percentage are able to obtain longterm housing from a tiny house.
There are over 3,000 unsheltered homeless in Seattle and nearly 6,000 in King County. We need 600 more tiny houses now to help reduce unsheltered homelessness.
DreamBig! — More Urban Rest Stops
Urban Rest Stops give homeless people a chance to refresh. You may take for granted being able to take a shower, do your laundry, and go to the bathroom. Many homeless people don’t have this option and resort to trying to get clean in public restrooms, which can be awkward and uncomfortable. LIHI’s Urban Rest Stops help many of our region’s homeless get the personal hygiene services that they need in a dignified setting, but the demand for these services far exceeds the capacity. An Urban Rest Stop in every neighborhood is our Big Dream.
