We're handing out free water to Seattle's homeless!

“We are doing this as long as the temperatures are above 80 degrees. So we are planning to do this all week long,” Scott Cleveland said.

“When you have no place to cover yourself, you know, to go in to cool off and it can be really bearing down on you. You get sunburned, you get dehydrated," says Geneva.

Our volunteers went into action last night — offering cold water, sunscreen and the chance to get off the streets for good.

Today's forecast is dangerously high for Seattle's homeless. Please, give now during this hot weather. www.ugm.org/coldwater

KING 5 News reports! We're launching a new Meal Mobile to deliver 400 meals daily to hungry children in Tukwila.

"50% of those eligible don't get lunch for various reasons and we thought, why?" Linda Lynch said. "Well maybe we just need to take lunch to the kids, because they can't get to the school locations."

"Children that don't get good nutrition start behind and then they're ill, they're missing school. It sets in motion a lot of things," said Lynch.

"It's my calling as a person to give back," says high school student Issac. He came up with the idea to host "Promless for the Homeless" in just 2 weeks!

Our women can't wait to get dressed up and dance the night away! But we need formal/prom dresses (all sizes: S-XXXL) to make sure everyone has something beautiful to wear.

Get in touch with Katie at kribera@ugm.org to donate and share this need with someone who might have a dress tucked away in their closet. Thank you!

Happy 4th of July!

Take time on this special day for America to celebrate what independence means to you. Our men and women in recovery are giving thanks for this country and their freedom from addiction.

"It has been a really hot week, I'm glad there is water here. You need it to survive," says Ronnie on the street.

Temps are expected to hit 90 degrees this week. Seattle's homeless are at risk in dangerous heat!

Will you help these thirsty men and women by giving right now? Your gift of $10 provides cold water and care for 10 homeless people. Thank you!

"Access to water is really hard," says Sam.

Heat wave in Seattle threatens our  homeless neighbors! Our volunteer teams are handing out ice cold water, sunscreen and bug spray. We're also opening a cooling center for our homeless at risk! 

Please help now. www.ugm.org/coldwater

A big thanks to 18-year-old senior Issac Chan and Bellevue's Newport High School students for giving "a prom, of sorts, to women who might never have danced at one of their own."

Everyone is so excited! The women in our recovery program and shelter can't wait to get dressed up for the big event this Saturday.

An Eastside high-school student decided to use money he would have spent on prom and instead throw a nice dinner party for women at a local homeless shelter. At Newport High, the idea has caught on fast.

Seattle +Mayor Ed Murray told homeless veterans: "That by the end of 2016, there will not be a veteran who is homeless in this city or this state. The resources are there," said Murray. "In many cases when it comes to veterans who are homeless, it's not getting them connected to the resources."
