5 Ways to Help People Experiencing Homelessness in the Summer

Our neighbors who are experiencing homelessness are vulnerable to the heat of summer. Learn more about how you can help.

Uplift Northwest is a Seattle non-profit temporary staffing organization that provides hundreds of workers to a wide variety of commercial and residential employers in the Puget Sound Region. We serve our community by providing job training, dignified work opportunities, and support services to men and women experiencing poverty and homelessness. Our privately funded operation runs on the support and generosity of our community donors and partners.

Just like our founder Martin Johanson did in 1921, we believe a job provides hope and an opportunity to stabilize one’s life. The Puget Sound Region is home to many men and women experiencing poverty and homelessness, and we believe providing dignified jobs is an essential component to rebuilding a thriving community.

Our proven jobs first program gets people back onto the path of self-sufficiency. In 2019, 907 people became job ready through Uplift Northwest’s Temporary Staffing Agency and earned over $2.1 million in collective wages. For those experiencing homelessness and poverty, this money is the difference between starvation, eviction, and getting their families off the streets. In the last few years, hundreds of Uplift Northwest workers earned permanent job placements and housing referrals, and this has the potential to translate into tens of millions of taxpayer dollars saved in public service expenses.
