Volunteers install doors and window frames
at Jacob's Well

The new Vision House Jacob’s Well complex, for local homeless single moms and their children, saw doors and windows framed by Abbott Construction’s Special Projects Team in Shoreline on Saturday, March 9th.

In 2011 volunteers from Abbott helped with the framing of the project and now they are helping again to install doors and hardware at the site. Single moms and children can almost taste the finish line and the day that they will have a safe warm place to reside and get their feet back on the ground during a time of need and despair. 

Jacob’s Well is located at 19630 20th Ave NE in Shoreline. When complete, the facility will have 12 apartments for homeless families, an after-school care program, crisis counseling offices and a community center.  A second phase will be built in the future - adding 8 apartments, a licensed child care center and a food and clothing bank to support resident families.

Vision House is a non-profit agency providing transitional housing, child care and support services to homeless mothers and their children, and separately to men recovering from drug or alcohol addiction. Vision House owns and operates four housing facilities and a child care center in south King County. The new Vision House Jacob’s Well complex in Shoreline is being built debt-free, thanks to local businesses, churches, foundations and community groups that are rallying with funding, in-kind donations and thousands of volunteer hours. For more information about Vision House or Jacob’s Well, visit NoHomelessKids or call 425-228-6356.

On behalf of the families who will soon call Jacob's Well home - thank you for your support of Vision House.
