LETTER TO THE EDITOR: A Thanks From Hospitality House
Dear Scott Schaffer Schaefer, editor of the B-Town Blog-
On behalf of all of us at Hospitality House Shelter in Burien, thank you for supporting our Walk for the Women fundraiser on your blog (read our coverage here). The web allows us to reach so many more people than in the past and judging by the numbers of new supporters we met last Saturday, it is a valuable medium.
Our work is only possible through the generous donations of groups and individuals in our community. Each year we take about 80 women living on friend’s couches, in their cars or on our streets into our House for a fresh start and a much needed second chance. Through individual attention by our case managers, each women begins to work through her program of healing and rebuilding. Over 65% of the women that enter Hospitality House move into stable housing and a new life.
Thank you for your continued support and the support of your readers.
Hospitality House Board Chair
