You’re Invited! Open House, May 3rd

5Years

We would like to cordially invite you to Georgia’s House “Open House” on Tuesday, May 3rd from 10:00 am- 4:00 pm. (Drop in when you’d like, of course!).

We would like to you see the impact your support has had on hundreds of women and children as well as the larger impact on our community. We’ll have light food and drinks. We would love to show you our new flooring, not to mention our remodeled kitchen. The ladies have loved it and it has made our place much better.

Our real impact has been on the ladies and children that have come through our shelter. We provided 5,682 bed nights in 2015 alone!. We should be able to provide even more in 2016.

The open house is celebrating our 5th anniversary! It also coincides with The Kitsap Great Give.
The Kitsap Great Give is a 24-hour, online giving event organized by the Kitsap Community Foundation and Presenting Partner, the United Way of Kitsap County, for the benefit of the greater Kitsap area.

On May 3, 2016, from 12:00 am to 11:59 p.m. Anyone can go to our Kitsap Great Give page and donate to Georgia’s House. All donations made during the Kitsap Great Give will be proportionally matched by a local bonus pool. That means your donation will go even further!

Funding from this event will help to keep the lights on and water flowing. It will allow us to be an active participant in the war against homelessness and poverty.

*All donations are tax-deductible in their full amount (prior to any fees).*

Thanks to the sponsors of the Kitsap Great Give:

New Partnership with Housing Solutions Center

Yay! We’re happy to announce that we are working with HSC again! New clients will be referred through them. HSC works with every shelter in the Kitsap area and allows for getting everyone a bed quickly and ensures people go to a proper setting.
Of course, we still take emergency intake on weekends. Part of our mission is that no one is turned from our door without some sort of help.
If you’re a person looking for a bed, please call Housing Solutions Center at (360) 473-2035. If no answer (if late night or on a weekend), try the Crisis Center at (360) 479-3033 or dial 2-1-1.

Georgia’s House Update

Hello Everyone,

I hope you are all having a great Memorial Day Week-end.

Just wanted to bring everyone an update on what’s happening here at Georgia’s House. We are happy to announce that Georgia’s House is at full capacity right now with 9 women and 4 children using the facility on a daily basis. In the past five weeks we have being able to provide services to 18 women and 9 children for a total of 290 bed nights. (Bed nights is the total number of beds that was occupied during this period.) We have also utilized a total of 319 volunteer-hours and I want to say thank you to everyone who have taken the time to stop in and spend quality time with our ladies.

The program offered at Georgia’s House is to allow these women an opportunity to get back on their feet without the stress or worries of finding shelter and a safe place to gather themselves. In the past 5 weeks we have had 2 successes; one lady found a full time job as a nanny and has moved on, another found a full-time job and was able to move on her own with her kids. That is what we hope to see continue to happen at Georgia’s House and we want to be here so we can all be involved in making it happen for other women who may presently be staying with us or those who may have future need of the services offered here.

We want everyone to consider Georgia’s House a community project; this means if you have the time and are looking for something to do we can find an activity to fill your day. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer please contact Mary Chapman at 360-479-9020 or by email maryvolunteercoor@gmail.com.
