About Broadview Shelter & Transitional Housing

Broadview provides housing for homeless parents and children in a secure, confidential facility. Broadview residents are domestic violence survivors, and two-thirds are children. Our mission is to help residents cope with the trauma of displacement and abuse, address the issues that led to their homelessness, develop a strong community support system, and find and secure permanent housing.

Free Summer Meals Distribution Volunteer
Volunteers will support Broadview staff in distributing breakfast, lunch, and snacks to youth. Duties include:

  • Interact with youth as they come to receive their meals.
  • Help inventory meals.
  • Check milk cartons for expiration dates and store food safely.
  • Maintain a friendly and outgoing attitude with children from diverse backgrounds.
  • Encourage children to dispose of their garbage appropriately.
  • Support cleanup after lunch and snack time.
  • Support group activities with children when possible and needed.

About Solid Ground

Mission Statement

Our mission... Solid Ground works to end poverty and undo racism and other oppressions that are root causes of poverty. Our vision... Solid Ground believes our community can move beyond poverty and oppression to a place where all people have access to quality housing, nutritious food, equal justice and opportunities to thrive. Our values... Solid Ground is committed to working with compassion, integrity, accountability, creativity and an anti-oppression approach to end homelessness, hunger, inequality and other barriers to social justice. We value collaboration and leadership from the communities we serve.

Description

Our history...

Solid Ground was founded in 1974 by community leaders and concerned citizens of one of Seattle's then most economically devastated neighborhoods, Fremont. Originally called the Fremont Public Association, our services - emergency food bank, clothing bank, and employment program - reflected the desperate needs and determined response of a mobilized and committed neighborhood.

Solid Ground today...

As the scope and severity of homelessness and poverty have increased over the years, so too have our reach to our greater community and our range of services. Now based in Seattle’s Wallingford neighborhood, our 30 programs and services help more than 60,000 households each year overcome poverty and build better futures throughout King County and beyond.
