Jacob's Well in Shoreline will add ten additional units
and a larger child care facility


Vision House, a local non-profit providing transitional housing and support services to homeless moms, dads and kids, is hosting a breakfast event to save lives and rescue families from homelessness in the greater Seattle area.

The benefit breakfast will be held on Tuesday, October 23, 2018 from 7:00 – 8:30am at the Lynnwood Convention Center, 3711 196th St SW, Lynnwood.

Dr. Gregory Jantz, Ph.D., world-renowned expert on depression, anxiety, abuse and addiction will be the guest speaker. He has appeared on CBS, ABC, NBC, Fox and CNN while also being a best-selling author of 37 books. Dr. Jantz will speak on the struggles homeless families experience with anxiety and depression and how that affects their ability to find stable housing and leave homelessness for good.

Cristine, a mother who graduated from the transitional housing program, will also be speaking about her difficult experience being homeless and how she was able to change her life by living at Vision House. She will encourage event guests to donate to help other homeless moms and kids that have yet to be reached.

The breakfast is open to the public and free to attend. Parking is free.

This event is sponsored by Hawk Alley Tailgate, HomeStreet Bank, Amazon.com, Comstock Jewelers, Team Echelbarger, Auto Warehousing Company, Coordinated Care, James Alan Salon, Jan Domek Photography, North Sound Church, Pillar Properties, Bethany Community Church North, The Drain Doctors and Windermere Real Estate.

Vision House is a non-profit organization providing transitional housing, child care and support services to homeless families. Since its beginning in 1990, the faith-based organization has served more than 1,200 homeless children, women, and men, each receiving the support they need for achieving independence and self-sufficiency.

Headquartered in Renton, the agency currently owns and operates 36 units of debt-free housing and two child care facilities in Shoreline and Renton.

Construction has started on 10 additional units at the Shoreline property that will also include a larger child care.
