Kitsap Bank recently presented a $2,500 donation to The Sophia Way as part of the bank’s partnership with 425 Business’ Women to Watch; The Sophia Way was this year’s featured nonprofit. The donation will support Sophia Way programs and their mission to end homelessness for single adult women in King county by providing shelter, social services, and permanent housing with support.
“Our local non-profits help make our community a great place to live and work,” stated Steve Politakis, Kitsap Bank’s Chief Executive Officer. “It’s our privilege to be able to support The Sophia Way’s mission and witness first-hand the positive impact they are making in the community.”
For over a decade, The Sophia Way has provided a safe place for homeless women in King county. In addition to meeting basic needs, such as offering showers, food and a place to sleep, The Sophia Way provides emergency and night shelters, a day center, case management, and more.
