Rating: 5

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.

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.

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.
