DAWN protects women and children from domestic abuse, providing shelter, support, and empowerment so they can build secure and happy lives.

WMFHA has supported the efforts of DAWN since 2006 through our annual Chili Cook-Off Charity Event. To date, we have raised almost $500,000 for DAWN!

Childhood trauma and adversity are the root cause of the most urgent and costly problems that plague our children, families, and community. Akin meets families in all places where they live, learn, and play, including early learning centers, pediatric settings, community centers, elementary schools, and home visits. Akin is staffed by a dynamic and diverse team of therapists, care coordinators, teachers, and parent partners. 

Since 2015, we have raised $500,000 for Akin at our annual Holiday Giving Gala

Rebuilding Together is a leading national nonprofit in safe and healthy housing with more than 40 years of experience. Our members have joined the local Rebuilding Together chapter each summer since 2015 to transform the lives of low-income homeowners by improving the safety and health of their homes.

The mission of Northwest Harvest is to lead the fight for hungry people statewide to have access to nutritious food while respecting their dignity and promoting good health. WMFHA shares its vision of ending hunger in Washington.

Northwest Harvest supports a statewide network of over 400 food banks, meal programs, and high-need schools. Focused on improving equity in our food system, Northwest Harvest believes that food should be available, accessible, adequate, and appropriate to all people.

Move For Hunger is a national hunger relief non-profit organization that mobilizes transportation networks to deliver surplus food to communities in need. Since 2009, Move For Hunger has collected over 42 million pounds of food, and has helped to provide more than 35 million meals.

When our residents move out they often leave non-perishable food behind. Before Move For Hunger existed, this food was often just thrown out. We collect that food and donate to a local food bank. 

The annual Fit2BeCancerFree Challenge is a fun, simple virtual fundraising effort to promote cancer prevention by empowering healthy activity in the workforce while also creating significant impact on improving the lives of people with cancer and their families. 

Members take part in a virtual journey that encourages physical activity each day and promotes engagement with the American Cancer Society, through motivational milestones while raising funds in support of the American Cancer Society mission.
