Home Field Advantage

by Mercy Housing

The Seattle Seahawks have the best Home Field Advantage in football. Now they are joining Mercy Housing Northwest to rally the community to give that same Home Field Advantage to families in need. You can help a family in need directly with flexible financial assistance. 

No one should face homelessness because they have to choose between rent and the expenses that destabilize households every day: Car repairs. Medical bills. Child care costs. Skyrocketing utility bills. 

Your gift will have double the impact! The Seahawks have pledged to match each gift dollar for dollar up to $20,000, giving you twice the opportunity to help a family in need with direct assistance. 

The number of families experiencing homelessness remains at crisis level in Seattle, and often hidden from view. When seeking help, these same families face a fragmented system where providers work side-by-side but not as one. 

Your gift today invests in a different vision: Allen Family Center. 

Allen Family Center will open in spring 2020, and features a super team of nonprofit partners working together - Mercy Housing Northwest, Mary's Place, Child Care Resources and Refugee Women's Alliance (ReWA). At Allen Family Center, there is no wrong door for families to find help and connect with their community.

On day one, families who come to Allen Family Center will find: 

  • Diversion, housing placement and homelessness prevention
  • Help in securing affordable and culturally appropriate childcare
  • Afterschool programs, health education, and financial stability
  • Immigrant/refugee family-centered services, such as job navigation, housing, and mental health services
  • Community events and social gatherings
  • A safe space to build healthy, positive relationships 

Donate today and give every family helped by Allen Family Center the ultimate Home Field Advantage!
