I volunteered with this wonderful organization in the past (and would like to in future when I have more free time). Everyone helps out and they are a pleasure to work with .. you feel that you are really contributing. The organization has low overhead costs so the money goes directly to supporting those in need.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

knowing one family with kids has a house to live in for at least 90 days.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

that you can see real tangible results. They are very open. The board meetings go over the issues ... opportunities, challenges etc It is small, personable and action based. You can share ideas and input easily and you can see the results.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

wonderful and hard working.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

expand its services to help more people in need.

This is a hard working group of volunteers, some of whom put in 50 - 60 hours/month providing clean secure transitional housing, rent and utilities free, to homeless families with children in South King County.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Seeing the growth in the organization in so many areas. Especially, in the upgrading of the houses available for our clients, and the increased use of technology in communications.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Dedicated, hardworking people, willing to help, in many different ways, as needed.

Way Back Inn far exceeds their goals each year by helping homeless children and their families. This program is operated by volunteers and only one staff person. 2009 has been a challenging year with the economic downturn -- less donations -- and many more homeless kids. If you've ever met a homeless child and you want to help them - year round -- this is the best program in Washington State.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

providing safe, clean, homes for children to sleep and play.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

giving back to the community.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

WONDERFUL, they are kind, compassionate, and thoughtful.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

provide more permanent, affordable homes for homeless children and their families, and education and training for the parents to provide for their families.
