We’re running a race – to end homelessness and to create a safe, caring community for all. Unfortunately, our fall fundraiser, the Amazing Race to End Homelessness, is in a race all its own – in competition with Washington Huskies football, the surging Seattle Mariners, and all the other activities that command your attention as we transition from summer to fall. And so with the Saturday, Sept. 13 social calendar already filling up, we’ve made the difficult decision to suspend this year’s running of the Amazing Race to End Homelessness.
We want to create an event that is a joy for our participants, that celebrates our hard-working staff, and, most importantly, creates additional resources for our mission to serve homeless families and individuals. And so we’re going to take a step back this year with the Amazing Race to End Homelessness. Call it a pit stop — we want to return with a bigger and better event than ever before, one that brings together our entire community in the cause to end homelessness.
The Amazing Race may not be happening this year, but there are still opportunities to support Compass Housing Alliance. In October, we’re cutting the ribbon on Compass on Dexter, our affordable housing for homeless and low-income families. Our new home in South Lake Union will connect 72 households with the support, amenities and opportunities to help them succeed. It’s more than housing – it’s a supportive, caring environment. And it’s a place we want to share with you. Join us Sunday, Oct. 5 from 1 – 3 p.m. as we open this beautiful new facility to the public.
Other ways you can participate:
- Sponsor an Apartment at Compass on Dexter. Donate $1,000 to sponsor an apartment for a family to call home.
- Join us for a Work Party at Compass on Dexter. Join us for our volunteer work party to set up the apartments. Contact email@example.com or 206-474-1071.
- Collect Target Gift Cards to help us furnish apartments. Donate a Target gift card in any amount and we’ll use the funds to prepare each apartment for the people who will call them home. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 206-474-1071.
On behalf of our staff, board, and the men, women and children that we serve, thank you for your continued support of Compass Housing Alliance.
