Siding and Sprinkler System Being Installed Now.

Upon completion, Vision House Jacob’s Well in Shoreline will provide a home and support services for 20 homeless families. Modeled after the successful Vision House program in Renton that serves 23 families, Jacob's Well will include a licensed child care center as well as a crisis center and program space. Since we construct our facilities debt-free, we're building on a pay-as-you-go basis and have raised the funding needed to get through painting the 3-story exterior and installing the fire sprinklers. Businesses, churches, individuals and community groups are now raising money for the heating and mechanical and have collected about $25,000 of the $80,000 needed. Hopefully we will be installing that in a few months as the dollars come in. Our goal, if donations continue to come in, is to move homeless families into the complex sometime in 2012.

Here are a few links that provide more information about the project:

There are opportunities for skilled and unskilled volunteers to help out on the construction site on Saturdays and Wednesdays. Contact Kristi for more information: or 425-228-6356. Check back often for updates!
