Way Back Inn Programs
Short-term Housing Program
Our Flagship program provides 1-3 months of temporary, transitional housing with all utilities paid while the family works towards finding employment and stable housing.
Long-term Housing Program
Families reside in one of our houses for up to 24-months while they are finishing an educational program. All families contribute up to 20% of their income helping to pay the rent and utilities.
Way Back Inn helps families at risk of becoming homeless by helping pay rent and utilities for one month.
Recent Successes and Current Challenges
A recent success involved an Iraq Army veteran who finished her electrical apprenticeship and is now working a good paying job. She and her son transitioned from a Way Back Inn unit to their own apartment.
Our needs include funding to pay utility bills, maintain our homes, etc. Due to turning away over 3,500 homeless families last year, we are looking for another unit in the South King County area -- preferrably Renton, Kent or Tukwila. The home must be suitable for young children and accommodate at least a family consisting of three to four people.
