Angeline’s Day Center & Matt Talbot Center Service Project

Angeline’s Day Center provides safety and support to women experiencing homelessness and it is run and managed by the YWCA Seattle-King-Snohomish (originally called Seattle Young Women’s Christian Association). Located in downtown Seattle, Angeline’s provides a variety of services including breakfast and lunch service; access to bathrooms, showers, and laundry; group activities and workshops, and overnight shelter to more than 200 women each day. Thanks to the collaboration of volunteers and different organizations, such as our school, YWCA is able to provide these services at Angeline’s.

Established in 1985, the Matt Talbot Center (MTC) is a recovery program and treatment center for people living with substance use disorders, homelessness, and mental illness. Located in Seattle’s Belltown neighborhood, the Matt Talbot Center offers hope, services and support to individuals ready to commit to their recovery with an intensive clinical outpatient treatment program offered in a Christian context.

As part of our Stewardship Service Program, our Seventh Grade students commit to assist either Angeline’s or the Matt Talbot Center by preparing and delivering lunch once a month. They feel great knowing they are helping to make a difference in the community and assisting these organizations in their goal of providing much needed support to people in need. Our students do this with contagious enthusiasm and joy in their hearts, as they get to show their love for others by serving. In addition, through completion of one more annual service project they continue developing their confidence, expanding their social networks and skills development.
