Georgia’s House is a homeless shelter in Bremerton, WA that helps homeless women and displaced women and their children. It is operated by the Weaver Foundation.
The Weaver Foundation was built on the ideals and inspirations of the woman for whom the shelter is named; Georgia Mattson was a caring, giving woman who believed in diversity and acceptance of each person she met. Upon Georgia’s death, a group of people from different walks in life got together and decided to continue her work in the community.
Georgia’s House, which is operated by The Weaver Foundation – Georgia Mattson Memorial Shelter, is a 501 (c) (3) organization. The house is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Our program is for low-income homeless women and children as well as women who have experienced domestic violence.
Our facility has five separate bedrooms, four of which we use for individual families, and the larger one serves as a dorm for single women. Our clients are all referrals from non-profit agencies in the Kitsap Community. Our staff consist of all volunteers who are willing to show compassion as well as provide listening ears and hearts.
The foundation’s primary focus is providing shelter and everyday living necessities to women over age 18 while they are working to overcome their homeless circumstances. The Weaver Foundation-Georgia Mattson Memorial Shelter does not discriminate in regards to race or beliefs.
WFGMMS partners with Wind of the Spirit Ministries, our spiritual inspiration in providing the services we offer. WOS provides monthly financial support to cover our insurance, and are available for counselling for clients needing guidance in areas other than what we can offer.
