Breaking News: Read the recent article from the Seattle Times

KentHOPE is a partnership in Kent, Washington of faith-based groups, Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission, Valley Cities Counseling and Consultation, businesses, local community service agencies and concerned individuals. The goal of KentHOPE is to establish a permanent KentHOPE Resource Center for homeless single men and women in Kent, open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

We are the congregations and individuals who provide meals for the homeless and low income members of our communities.  (see community meals tab above for a list of free community meals). We also meet emergency needs of community members through the distribution of benevolence funds donated by our congregations.

On December 16, 2013, KentHOPE and Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission (SUGM) established the KentHOPE Day Center for Women and Children at 9009 Canyon Drive. We serve an average of 20 women a day at the day center, providing for their immediate needs and linking them to community resources to find jobs and housing.

In March of 2014, KentHOPE and SUGM initiated the KentHOPE Women’s Overnight Shelter, a rotating shelter hosted by 6 Kent churches, March through November. Thank you Kent United Methodist, First Evangelical Presbyterian, New Beginnings Christian Fellowship, Kent Lutheran, First Presbyterian, and Kent Covenant!

KentHOPE is moving forward with our partner, Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission (SUGM), towards our vision of establishing the KentHOPE Resource Center to provide hope and assist those who are homeless in pathways to stable housing and a more secure future.

  1. I am pretty ill right now; but when I am feeling better, I want to go through my closet and donate all my no longer wearables. I was a Paralegal in training and had to suddenly stop working due to health. So, I have all sorts of clothing – business interview attire to casual – size 1x. Would such type of clothing be useful for the gals using your facility? I prefer this type of donation rather than goodwill where items are sold.
