Phil Owen, director of SIDEWALK , a program of Interfaith Works whose mission is to eliminate homelessness in Thurston County was the speaker at the February 3, 2014, meeting of the Olympia Kiwanis Club.

 

Homelessness is down 17% in the US, since 2007.  In 2013, SIDEWALK placed 170 individuals in housing.  By using rapid rehousing to end homelessness - a rental assistance program that combines continued case management with rent support - the cycle of homelessness can be broken.  SIDEWALK is run almost entirely by volunteers, who receive 50 hours of training before they begin their volunteer activities.  For more information, contact:  www.walkthurston.org or call 360-515-5587.  Volunteer training happens every quarter.

Olympia Kiwanis President Debra Seeman, Olympia Kiwanis Raffle Co-Chairs Karen Fraser and Les Eldridge presented a check to SafePlace Director Kellie Patton at the October 26, 2015, meeting of the Olympia Kiwanis Club.  The raffle was possible thanks to the generosity of Thurston County Merchants, including Cabelas, Panowitz Jewelers, Lucky Eagle Casino, and Anthony's Restaurant as part of our annual Harbor Days celebration during Labor Day weekend each year.  This year, $2,838.21profit was raised and donated to SafePlace thanks to the raffle ticket sales efforts of our members.  SafePlace is an advocacy agency and confidential shelter for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault in Thurston County.
