    Who we are

    On any given night in Seattle, 7001,000 young people have no safe place to sleep.

    You might not recognize them as homeless theyre riding the bus with you, or

    sitting next to you at school, trying to blend in. While their classmates are fretting

    over schoolwork, they worry about their next meal or where theyll sleep tonight.

    At YouthCare, we help homeless youth ages 12 to 24 get off the streets and prepare

    for life. From food and other basic needs, to shelter and housing, to education and

    employment programs, YouthCares services turn that kid in a doorway into a kid in

    school, an adult on the job, an independent and stable citizen.

    You can help our communitys homeless youth today with a donation.

    THE SEASON OF GIVING IS UPON US!As Hanukkah and Thanksgiving coincide later this month, take some time to think about ways you can help

    others during this early holiday season. Our annual Tzedakah section features multiple organizations in ourcommunity that help those who are less fortunate than we are, help us educate our children, and make our

    communities both in and out of the Jewish population a better place. As you read through the many

    organizations featured in the Tzedakah section, talk with your family about how charitable donations make the

    world a better place, then list how you want to direct your giving.

    Help our Heroes Reclaim Their Lives

    Hope for heroism is an organization created by and led by elite IDF officers

    who were injured protecting Israel. HFH is based on an innovative model of

    being shared with the U.S.

    The goal of HFH is to help injured combat soldiers

    reclaim their lives after injury and, in many cases,

    continue to serve the Jewish people.

    Hope for Heroism is currently helping over

    360 injured combat soldiers in Israel and inspiring

    over 6,000 Jewish people in schools and communities

    around the world.

    Who we are

    At FareStart, we believe that every person deserves the chance to change his or

    her life story.

    Each persons life story is valid. Every path, no matter the turns and hardships,demands respect and compassion. Yet not everyone has a place where his or her lifes

    journey is welcomed, not everyone has a community where they can learn to honor

    and shape their own story. This is especially true for people who have lost their way.

    Whether begun by a persons choices or forces beyond ones control, these are paths

    that can lead to invisibility.

    But there remains a glimmer of strength. It sparks from different places for

    different people, but it happens. They are motivated to tryone more timeto start a

    new life after experiencing homelessness, addiction or other life challenges. Ready to

    take another step forward into a positive future.

    FareStart is one of the few places in our community poised to welcome and

    embrace the stories and lives of people in need, to help them take that first step. FareStart provides a

    community that transforms lives by empowering homeless and disadvantaged men, women, and families

    to achieve self-sufficiency through life skills, job training and employment in the food service industry.

    Over the past 21 years, FareStart has provided opportunities for nearly 6,500 youth and adults, whilealso serving over 5.5 million meals to those in need. FareStarts adult culinary program combines hands-

    on food service training with classroom instruction, individual case management, and job placement

    services, preparing homeless and disadvantaged men and women for jobs in the restaurant and

    hospitality industries. In addition to the 16-week training program, students also receive ongoing support

    after graduation to ensure that they remain employed and realize long-term success.

    Your generous contributions to FareStart will ensure that the men and women in our programs

    receive t
