Can you believe another school year is over? It is hard to imagine when we started feeding homeless kids five years ago, we would evolve into the emergency support system we are today.

Our goal is to remove stressors associated with being homeless, so that our kids can focus on school and not where they will sleep or what they will eat. We are part of a great team, the social workers in our schools develop action plans and we provide resources to help families stay on track.

Together with your help, look what we accomplished this year.

• Provided 47 families in the Edmonds School District a safe place to sleep while waiting for transitional housing. A total of 326 nights in local hotels. Most of the families we assist have medically fragile children or are single moms without a vehicle to sleep in.

• We provided 32,000 small bags of food to students riding McKinney-Vento busses, many children would have gone to bed hungry without this program.

• Emergency closets at every school in the district that requests assistance. Closets consist of emergency food, shoes and socks, underwear, toiletry and hygiene items.

• 37 families did not lose their homes because we were able to help them catch up on their rent due to an immediate crisis.

• 42 families stayed warm because we were able to help keep their utilities on.

• We were able to assist over 100 students with our Granted Wishes programs. Social Workers request financial assistance for items students need for school or to engage with the community. We have paid for items ranging from orthotic shoes to eyeglass exams, field trips to bicycles to help students get to work, prom tickets to twin beds, vaccinations to dental work.

We cannot do what we do without your help. Sometimes the needs seem overwhelming, then we remember our community support and realize, it just takes a little from each of us to make a really big difference to a child.

Thank you for joining us on this journey. We appreciate you.
