What We Do

Congregations for the Homeless works to end homelessness in East King County, Washington. We do this by helping men to successfully make the transition from homelessness to permanent housing. Our agency offers 6 services:

  1. Day Center
  2. Year-round shelter and an emergency Winter Shelter

From homelessness to housing, one man at a time.

  1. A complete case management system
  2. A subsidized housing program
  3. Outreach and mentorship
  4. Employment support

All work together to give a single man the path to a stable productive life.


Volunteer of the Month

Jennifer Defluri – Hair Stylist Extraordinaire!

For two years, Jennifer has been providing haircuts in the Year-Round shelter.  Every other month Jennifer provides haircuts – sometimes as many as 10 cuts an evening.  Through her time in serving CFH clients, Jennifer has grown a heart for the mission; recently Jennifer accepted a position with Plymouth Housing as an Outreach Specialist to further pursue the service of those in need.

When asked about her commitment to working with our men, Jennifer shared, “Everyone has problems and issues, but we’re all people.”

It’s the heart of volunteers like Jennifer that make a difference in the lives of our men each and every day!


Thank you!

Our fundraising luncheon on Wednesday, September 17 was a resounding success! Staff members shared success stories, success statistics, and we got to hear directly from some of our clients about how much CFH means to them.

We raised over $100,123!

If you missed the luncheon, you can still make a contribution.

Below is the video we showed at our luncheon. Please feel free to share!

Below are some of the photos from our lunch. Thanks to all our staff and volunteers who worked hard to make the event happen (and clean up afterwards!). Special thanks go out to Donna McLeod, Events Manager.
