On Tuesday, May 21st, the Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue had almost 750 guests eager and attentive to consider their legacy.  The Vision House Luncheon featured speaker and New York Times bestselling author Bob Goff, who shared about Vision House putting a new face on homelessness and being the voice calling to those in need.  He affirmed Vision House for showing kids that they are kids of the King and that they have a future and hope.

Executive Director Derek Sciba shared some of the reasons families face homelessness and how Vision House is equipping people for life...with staff and volunteers who come alongside as guides.  "We show families the love we see modeled by Jesus.  That love is not transactional.  It's relational.”  Sciba shared that the Vision House program includes therapy, job training and searches, classes and helping families to make connections.  This strategy has enabled Vision House to have a 90% success rate in moving families to permanent housing.  

The goal of this event was to raise support for families experiencing homelessness in the greater Puget Sound area and rally advocates in the community to care for families who may be struggling in their midst.  More than $850,000 has been raised to help provide safety and healing for families.
