Chaplains on the Harbor Seeks Donations

Supportive Housing Campaign. On Sept. 1, thanks to seed money from the Diocese of Olympia, Chaplains on the Harbor moved two new/expecting moms and one dad out of tent city and into rental housing with room for up to three mothers, their partners and children. This Supportive Housing Campaign has set a goal to raise $12,000 to house these parents for the remainder of the year as they work to regain and maintain custody of their children, which was jeopardized due to homelessness and poverty issues. It will take $1,000 per month to cover the rent -- of which seed money has already covered the first two -- along with furnishing and maintaining the home. [Donate Now] Read more »
