Why Give

Building Stability and Self-sufficiency

Your gift to Byrd Barr Place will help people meet their basic needs so they can focus on getting themselves and their families back on their feet. With your support:

  • More families will keep a warm roof over their heads and avoid homelessness.
  • The heat and lights will stay on in thousands of Seattle households during the cold winter months.
  • More children will have a stable home and enough to eat so they can succeed in school.
  • Elders and those who are homebound will have access to fresh, healthy food.

Moving Together Capital Campaign

Your contribution will fund the renovation of our historic firehouse home to make it more accessible, safe and welcoming for the whole community. With your gift, we can continue to expand on our 55-year legacy of social service and racial and economic justice.
