We are a non-profit agency that provides immediate shelter, food and clothing to hundreds of refugees each year when they first arrive in the Seattle area. Our clients come from countries throughout the world, fleeing war, political oppression and religious persecution. We assist in cultural adjustment, language, and the basics of day-to-day living. All financial donations assist our office in covering overhead costs, purchasing food, clothing and furniture for our clients, and expanding our services.
