Help the homeless by donating to the United Way's Community Resource Exchange

Seattle University shares a strong and longstanding relationship with the United Way of King County. Here's another opportunity for SU faculty and staff to lend a hand to help improve the quality of life in our wider community.

United Way's Community Resource Exchange is a day devoted to connecting people experiencing homelessness in King County with immediate access to the services and resources they need. In one place on one day attendees enjoy a hot meal and have access to free health services, haircuts, voicemail accounts, public benefits, referrals to employment training and more. Last October, more than 1,200 community members experiencing homelessness came to the Community Resource Exchange for a day of hope and help.
