Michael Ramos, Executive Director of the Church Council remarks: We thank all the fine organizations that applied for funding that make such a difference in the lives of people experiencing homelessness. These projects to be recognized stood out for their ability to walk with diverse and vulnerable populations toward exiting homelessness and achieving lasting housing stability. We believe these efforts honor the spirit and legacy of the passionate, solution-driven innovator toward ending homelessness, the Honorable Mike Lowry.
The Lowry Fund to End Homelessness was established by the family of Mike Lowry, former Governor and Member of Congress in the State of Washington, in order to honor his legacy and passion to end homelessness and develop affordable housing to own or rent for people of low or modest incomes. The Church Council of Greater Seattle was established in 1919 to build relationships among congregations and the wider community to promote service to and justice for all people. The Church Council has worked at the intersection of addressing homelessness and providing for affordable housing for all over a period of 40 years.
