The purpose of the Seattle University Project on Family Homelessness is to engage the public in ending family homelessness.  Most people know us because of the Journalism Fellowships on Family Homelessness, which was our first initiative four years ago.

We’ve been up to a lot since then.

Want to learn more? Visit About Us, or link to our blog to see our most up-to-date news. Or, like us on Facebook.

Our biggest projects this summer and fall of 2014 are the StoryCorps “Finding our Way” project and supporting the work of our sister project, Film & Family Homelessness.

We hope you’ll find some fresh ideas for how you can work with us to make homelessness among families rare, brief and not repeated.

Thank you for visiting us.
