SEATTLE — Congregation for the Homeless (CFH) is a men's shelter in Bellevue, serving men 18 and up year round. CFH is temporarily housed on City of Bellevue property with a permanent location slated for completion in 2022. However, the local fire department concluded CFH's temporary location was unfit to house people overnight in its current state, leaving around 100 homeless men with nowhere to sleep.
Upon hearing the news, local developer Kevin Wallace of Wallace Properties decided to step in and help, fundraising and privately funding upgrades to the temporary location so the homeless men of Bellevue would have somewhere to rest their heads. Wallace and David Bowling of CFH join New Day Northwest to talk about the process, and how best to help the homeless.
