Vision House: Building Hope Benefit Breakfast

Tuesday, September 29, 2015

Vision House is holding a breakfast event to raise support for homeless families in the greater Puget Sound area.

Susan Camerer, Vision House Executive Director and Co-Founder, said, “We can’t wait around for someone else to do it! We need to work together to end homelessness for as many families as possible.”

The fundraiser will be held on Thursday, October 22nd, from 7:30 – 8:50am at the Lynnwood Convention Center, 3711 196th Street SW, Lynnwood, WA.

Mark Canlis, co-owner of Canlis Restaurant, will be the keynote speaker. Hear Mark impart his passion for investing generously in his team, and hear a Vision House resident share her experiences of pressing through traumatic life events to self-sufficiency.

Canlis Restaurant, on the day of the terrible bus accident on the Aurora Bridge which claimed five lives, closed its doors for the day and sent its servers out on the bridge to take food to the first responders - the police, fire, paramedics - who were dealing with the dozens of trapped and wounded people.

The breakfast is open to the public and free to attend. Guests will be invited to make a generous donation during the presentation. Parking is free, and the event is easy to find – just one block from I-5.

RSVPs are required by October 16 and can be made at or 425-228-6356.

Vision House is a Christian non-profit providing transitional housing, child care, and support services to homeless families and separately to men recovering from drug or alcohol addiction. Since its beginning in 1990, more than 1,000 homeless children, women, and men have received the support they need for achieving independence and self-sufficiency.

Headquartered in Renton, the agency owns and operates eight debt-free housing facilities in Renton, Burien, and Jacob's Well in Shoreline; two child care and before- and after-school care facilities in Shoreline and Renton.
