VISION HOUSE SPRING LUNCHEON
On Monday, May 8th, the Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue had almost 700 guests eager and attentive to consider their legacy. The Vision House Luncheon featured speaker and New York Times bestselling author Bob Goff, who spoke on the joy of neighbors and community coming together to be a safety net - a safety net of care and support we all desperately need - especially local moms and kids at Vision House.
The goal of this event was to raise support for families experiencing homelessness in the greater Puget Sound area, and that is exactly what was done. More than $735,000 has been raised to help provide safety and healing for families.
Executive Director, Melissa Gehrig, shared about the continuum of care that Vision House provides for families. “Families are in crisis and just getting them housed is not enough. We can’t just put someone in a house and expect them to be successful in keeping it.” Gehrig shared that the Vision House program includes case management, accountability, and time with licensed mental health counselors. This strategy has enabled Vision House to have a success rate historically of 90-92% in moving families to permanent housing.
