Feeding Students and Families
Our mission is to provide food to the children each day after school. Some of the children will not have another meal from the time they leave school until they come back to school the next day. The food is distributed on the bus for them to take home. Currently we provide 250 small food bags each day after school. Last year we distributed 32,000 small bags of food.Read More
The Emergency Motel Voucher Program
The emergency motel voucher program was created to assist families in crisis. Washington Kids in Transition will provide hotel stays for families enrolled in transitional programs through the School District and with a recommendation from the District homeless liaison and Student Resources Advocates. Funding is limited for this program and we NEED YOUR HELP. Last year, we provided 362 nights to families in the district in need.Read More
Currently, we offer emergency closets to every school in the Edmonds School District. Social workers and case managers have the opportunity to “shop” for emergency items. Although our inventory is always changing, we carry emergency food, clothing, hygiene, toiletries, shoes, socks, and gift cards.Read More

The needs of each homeless family is different, as licensed social workers guide families out of homelessness, Washington Kids is there to provide the resources each family needs
