Vision House' Jacob's Well
in Shoreline

Families experiencing homelessness are about to benefit from an extremely generous gift for years to come. In her will, a very generous donor bequeathed a large sum of money to be divided up among four areas of service.

Vision House, a nonprofit that provides transitional housing for families, was chosen in the homelessness category.

Vision House was presented with a gift of $765,000! The nonprofit is in the middle of a large Capital Campaign to build ten additional apartments in Shoreline and this donation brings the building almost to completion.

There is still a lot of work left to be done in raising the remaining balance of approximately $500,000.

This donation was a complete surprise and originally thought to be $500,000. After meeting with Vision House's leadership, the donors (who wish to stay anonymous) landed on an extra $265,000!

Vision House is a non-profit providing transitional housing, child care and support services for homeless families to assist them in rebuilding their lives and achieving self-sufficiency. In 2018, 96% of Vision House families transitioned successfully to permanent housing.

The agency owns and operates 36 units of housing and two child care facilities, including Jacob's Well in Shoreline. When the second building in Shoreline is complete, Vision House will have a total of 46 apartments for homeless families.
