Thanks to the Master Builders Care Foundation and about 150 volunteers for "Painting a Better Tomorrow" at Jacob's Well in early November! A great day was had by all who helped paint the interior of the Jacob's Well complex for homeless mothers and children.

There is still more painting to be done, so if you can help out please contact Kristi Slattery at: or 425-228-6356.

Thanks to about 280 people who attended our Jacob's Well Building Hope dessert event,  $132,600 was raised! These funds will help complete our Jacob's Well complex in Shoreline for homeless mothers and children.

About $800,000 is left to raise to finish the building  (DEBT-FREE!), but we expect about half of that to be provided through donated materials and labor.

UPDATE: The exterior has been painted, drywall has been installed and we're ready to paint the interior. As part of the Master Builders Care Foundation's Painting a Better Tomorrow, volunteers will be painting the interior on Saturday, November 3rd. Sign up to help!

Women Helping Women: Shoreline Sleep-Out
Turning Tents into Homes
Friday, Sept. 21 @7pm to Saturday Sept. 22 @8am

Shoreline Covenant Church
1330 N. 185th St.
Shoreline, WA

Women and friends of Shoreline Covenant Church are turning tents into homes for women and children by raising money to buy interior paint for Jacob's Well – our new transitional housing complex, being constructed in Shoreline for homeless women and children. Bring your tent and pledges from friends, neighbors, family and co-workers and spend one night in solidarity with our sisters who struggle every night to find a safe and dry and warm place to sleep with their kids. We will end on Saturday morning with breakfast served at 8am! Contact the church by September 17th to register.

This challenge was last done in 2010 when 43 women slept out in tents in the Shoreline Covenant Church parking lot and raised over $18,000 to purchase lumber for the framing of Jacob’s Well. We will again "sleep-out" in our tents in the church parking lot with the hope of raising, through pledges, the $25,000 needed to purchase the interior paint for Jacob’s Well. We already have one donor willing to match each dollar up to $3,000 and each woman who participates must raise a minimum of $100.

Shoreline Covenant will be joined by Mars Hill and The Vineyard in this effort. If women from any other church would like to also join, or you have questions, contact Pastor Erika Haub at 206-542-1050 or email her at

Anyone can pledge $30 toward a gallon of paint or can make a flat donation in any amount. Make checks to Shoreline Covenant Church, note “Shoreline Sleep-Out” in the memo line. Or donate on the Vision House website: and make a note in the comments field with “Shoreline Sleep-Out”.

Amazing Progress!

The last of the siding is going up and the painters will be here soon. The wiring is done, as well as the rough-in plumbing, electrical and low voltage. The fire sprinkler system is being installed and soon the 1st floor HVAC will be going in. Jacob's Well will be a place of healing and restoration for homeless mothers and their children. Thanks to all who believe in the Vision House mission and have taken action to be part of this community effort at Jacob's Well in Shoreline.

 Isn't the building beautiful?!

Thanks Virgil, Eric and Scott for volunteering to help build the Jacob's Well complex. 
 Tom, retired firefighter, is making a difference in his retirement years. Thank you!

Siding Nearing Completion

Our leadership team: Bob, Liza, Susan and Simon
We are almost finished with the siding on the outside. On the interior we are installing electrical and heating and mechanical. Our next fundraising goal is to raise the dollars needed to finish the electrical and low voltage wiring. The project keeps progressing nicely and we are grateful to all of our volunteers who faithfully show up to lend a hand. Pictured is the current leadership team: Bob serves as our onsite superintendent, Liza volunteers her time as our project manager, Susan Camerer serves as Vision House's executive director and Simon the architect volunteers an extensive amount of time. We are truly blessed with such an amazing team.
