Hospitality House’s 11th Annual ‘Walk for the Women’ fundraiser walk will be held Saturday, Sept. 29.

“Have fun, win prizes and do good,” reads an announcement. “The walk is an easy two miles through the heart of Burien to benefit homeless women.”

This is a fundraiser for Burien’s Hospitality House, a shelter for homeless women, a safe haven where those with nowhere to turn can find warm, dry shelter and healthy, nourishing food.

“Each year we graduate approximately 80 women from a comprehensive, 90-day program designed to help residents find employment, improve their life skills and secure a safe, affordable place to call home,” they said.

How are donated dollars spent?

  • $25 registration fee will stock the refrigerator of Hospitality House with sandwich-makings for one day.
  • $75 pays for one night of shelter.
  • $250 sponsorship pays the monthly phone bill.
  • $500 sees a residence through a two-week stay.
  • $2,000 sponsors a resident for the entire 12-week program, preparing her for a secure and stable life.

How many have been helped?
Since Hospitality House opened its doors in 2000, nearly 1,000 women ages 18 to 80 have benefitted from our
services.
