Turning Housing into Homes





In 2012, working with approximately 60 member agencies throughout King County, we helped 2,614 people (including 1,040 children under 18) establish 1,228 new households.  In doing so, we also kept more than 22,000 items donated by local businesses and community members out of our area landfills.

The basic necessities provided by the Sharehouse are critically important for families and individuals who are working hard to reclaim their lives. As one recipient said, “I wanted to tell you that you make a positive difference in people’s lives. I can’t express enough how this has helped us in rebuilding and giving more a sense of home. So here’s a big thank you from my heart to your efforts and resilience to change the world one needy person at a time.”


Member agencies report that families and individuals who have utilized the Sharehouse are twice as likely to be in stable housing after two years.  As a staffer from one of our member agencies remarked, “Thank you for your support and tremendous patience with me, my clients, and their interpreters.  Your staff went above and beyond what was expected.  I appreciate all the work your team does in making this service available!”
