The purpose of the Seattle University Project on Family Homelessness is to help tell the stories of families who are homeless, and connect those stories to meaningful action. Most people know us because of the Journalism Fellowships on Family Homelessness, which was our first initiative in 2010.

Thank you for visiting us.
