People having crisis are referred to us by local community churches and homeless agencies, even social workers at school. For a job interview some ask for shoes, clothing, gas or bus ticket for transportation. For a broken down car which is their only living space others ask for repair. Sometime people lost their tent and/or sleeping bag, and got sick during the cold weather. Some people just came to Seattle from other states to find a job without having any relatives or friends here and called us to help. Some people call to find out a way out of domestic violence. Nest Mission responds to all these issues faithfully as best as we can.
In Tacoma/Lakewood/Federal Way area if you have any crisis like above, please come to Thursdays NEST TABLE at Manitou Park Presbyterian Church or contact Rev. Kyung H. Lee @ 253-732-3929.
In Lynnwood/Edmonds/S. Everett area, please come to Fridays NEST TABLE at Maplewood Presbyterian Church or contact Rev. Deuksil Jung @ 206-255-0676.
Emergency Motel Stay
For those who ended up back on the streets after a surgery or after contracting illnesses during their homelessness and nowhere to turn, we offer opportunities for them to recuperate from their surgeries and illness before they are forced back onto the streets. We made arrangements with local motels to house these individuals for few days to even a month until they are able to regain their health.
Through this effort, Nest Mission has helped 210 people or families to stay at motels for 938 nights and has spent $34,529. Anyone who wants to apply to this program must have a medical document from the hospital or doctor.
