Hunger and Homelessness in Seattle

  •  Hunger & Homelessness in Seattle is a five-day service immersion during Spring Break. Students participate in direct service at social service agencies in Seattle and explore the realities and root causes of hunger and homelessness. Focusing largely on urban hunger and homelessness, this immersion takes place right in Seattle.

     Working with various non-profit agencies such as Operation Sack Lunch, Full Life Care, Treehouse, DESC, and others, students consider and reflect upon issues that have an impact on the lives of people who are experiencing homelessness, refugees and immigrants, elders, foster children, and people with disabilities. You’ll explore root causes and learn about the many ways that organizations are striving to meet immediate needs while working to address the root causes of food insecurity and homelessness.

     The cost for this immersion is generally in the range of $100 - $130. Financial assistance is available for those who qualify.
