This week’s guest is Erin Dury Moore, Executive Director of the West Seattle Helpline. The WS Helpline is a community-based nonprofit putting a stop to homelessness before it starts in West Seattle and White Center through emergency services to families and individuals.
This is the WS Helpline’s 30thyear. In 30 years they have grown a lot. The average assistance for rent utility or move-in deposit is about 300 dollars. They serve 100 percent of the eligible individuals that call.
Erin’s entire career has been in non-profit. Most recently, prior to her current role, she worked with child welfare and saw the impact of homelessness on families in the child welfare system.
