Solid Ground works to end poverty and undo racism and other oppressions that are root causes of poverty.
Who we are
We're stronger when we support stability and break down the barriers to overcoming poverty. Solid Ground combines direct services to meet basic needs - stable housing, adequate transportation, and reliable nutrition sources - with advocacy to nurture success and spread change.
This year, all donations for GiveBIG will be directed to Solid Ground's Broadview Emergency Shelter and Transitional Housing, which provides confidential temporary housing for parents and their children experiencing homelessness due to domestic violence.
When former Broadview resident, Tiffany, was accepted into the program, she was able to take financial education classes with her case manager. By the time she and her kids left Broadview, she’d built up impressive savings.
Home to nearly 300 children and their families each year, Solid Ground’s Broadview program helps families like Tiffany’s work to stabilize and remove barriers by providing trauma-informed, survivor-centered service driven by residents’ own goals. When you donate to the Solid Ground Broadview program, you join thousands of community members across the Puget Sound area to support one of Seattle’s only domestic violence (DV) shelters and housing programs.
Building healthy relationships between parents and children is another essential key to supporting healing after abuse and generational success for families that come to Broadview. Read Understanding stress can heal relationships between parents and children to learn more about the work to rebuild after domestic violence.
