United Way’s Family Resource Exchange offers help and hope to families experiencing homelessness, and one will be held this Saturday, Oct. 20 at Sylvester Middle School in Burien.

This free event will run from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Partnering with Wellspring Family Services, Mary’s Place and Starbucks, United Way will provide families critical housing resources and much-needed services like haircuts. At this fall Family Resource Exchange, kids will be able to choose a Halloween costume to keep, enjoy pumpkin decorating, a cupcake walk and more!

Here are the details:

WHO: Even in this boom economy, hundreds of families are experiencing homelessness in King County. Data shows more than 4,000 school children in Seattle Public Schools alone experienced homelessness last year, staying in shelters, with friends or living on the streets.

WHY: Homelessness is a crisis in our community as more than 12,000 people are without a place to call home. While some are staying in shelters, thousands of people are living on the streets, under bridges or in their cars. This includes families with children attending schools in our community.

WHEN: Saturday, Oct. 20, 2018, 11 a.m. – 3 p.m.

WHERE: Sylvester Middle School, 16222 Sylvester Road SW, Burien, WA 98166
