What are you passionate about? What are you good at? Take answers to those questions and find a way to get involved for life.
This was Facing Homelessness founder Rex Hohlbein’s advice to an energized crowd last night at a community event hosted by All Home.
The event highlighted different ways people are stepping up to help community members who are experiencing homelessness. “Love and burritos” is what two Ballard residents have to offer. Watch them explain what this means in this beautiful video:
Whatever your passions and talents, you can make a difference! Here are some ideas event attendees shared:

Looking for other ways to get involved? Here are a few:
- Do you love talking to people? Join Housing and Homelessness Advocacy Day and tell your lawmakers why you’re passionate about ending homelessness.
- Do you love shopping? Purchase holiday gifts for families experiencing homelessness through YWCA Seattle | King | Snohomish’s Adopt-a-Family program.
- Do you love posting on social media? Share stories about homelessness with your online networks.
What will you do?
