In February of 2019, Metropolist partnered with Reach, a division of Evergreen Treatment Services. REACH builds relationships with people experiencing homelessness and connects them to the help that they need – everything from food and clothing to medical care, shelter, and mental health and/or substance use treatment.
Their interdisciplinary teams are made up of case managers, social workers, chemical dependency specialists, nurses, and other compassionate staff who are devoted to their clients. Below is the link to their homepage.
It doesn’t take much to look around and see the impact the pandemic has had on those living without homes. Many of the establishments these folks might normally count on for food, clothing and public bathrooms are not operating at full capacity, or might be closed all together. Imagine, not having access to washing your hands?
How can you help?
Here is the list of items Reach is in need of NOW…
• Sweat pants
• Men’s and woman’s clothing (men’s preferred)
• Long sleeve shirts
• Gift cards
• Gas cards
• Direct donations at the following link…
In the month of August, Metropolist brokers are rising to the occasion, and organizing a donation drive to get Reach the supplies they need. All donations can be dropped off at Metropolist by appointment only, or connect with your broker for more details and how they can come to you.
Together, we can and will, make a difference in the lives of those most vulnerable in Seattle. Those living without homes.
