If solutions were easy to come by, then our region’s troubles would be fleeting. But even as economic conditions continue to improve across the Pacific Northwest, many among us are chronically left behind or teetering on the brink of it. As we’ve seen throughout the region, homelessness is affecting so many members of our community and the need for support are the greatest for individuals and families at risk and policy advocates who are working hard to create meaningful change. That’s why GeekWire, Bank of America and Seattle Foundation are collaborating with five local nonprofits through Geeks Give Back to deliver resources and solutions that will make the Puget Sound more inclusive and accessible for everyone in our community. Join us in making an impact.

Comprehensive Care: Solutions for Families


Mary’s Place believes that no one’s child should sleep outside, and that all families should have safety, stability and housing. Mary’s Place provides safe, inclusive shelter and services that support women, children and families on their journey out of homelessness.


Mercy Housing is working to create a more humane world where poverty is alleviated, communities are healthy and all people can develop their full potential. We believe that affordable housing and supportive programs improve the economic status of residents, transform neighborhoods and stabilize lives.

The Path Forward: Solutions for Individuals


DESC works to end the homelessness of vulnerable people, particularly those living with serious mental illnesses or substance use disorders. Through partnerships and an integrated array of comprehensive services, treatment and housing, DESC gives people the opportunity to reach their highest potential.


Plymouth Housing Group works to eliminate homelessness and address its causes by preserving, developing and operating safe, quality, supportive housing and by providing homeless adults with opportunities to stabilize and improve their lives.

The Big Picture: Advocating for Effective Policy


Through education, advocacy and leadership, Housing Development Consortium supports and inspires its members as they work collaboratively to meet the housing needs of limited-income people throughout King County.
