Angel Resource Connection

Serving the homeless by providing access to housing, hot meals, and winter supplies to survive hypothermia.

Donate to help the unsheltered survive winter

Sleeping Bags and Backpacks

 Burr!! From Seattle to Everett, ARC provides sleeping bags and warm clothes to as many unsheltered people as possible! With freezing temperatures and the threat of hypothermia, we bought every sleeping bag we could get our hands on at local stores. It's heartwarming when people rush to our table wearing skimpy clothes and leave all bundled up! A woman only had on a hoodie, but we gave her a puffy winter coat and a sleeping bag. She was in tears and said, “I did know how I was going to make it, but now I’m warm.”

From homeless to homeowners faces and their stories

Angel Resource Connection was on Fox 13 News, featuring Courtney, Dakota, and their young child. They were facing being homeless until ARC stepped in and ensured they received the title to a donated motorhome.
Courtney, who worked full-time, and her partner, who also worked, could not save enough to get into a home.
The magic happened when these two met.
Olivia Bergan lost her husband and wanted the motorhome to go to someone in need.
She made a friend in Olivia and said she thinks of Courtney and her baby daily.
You are welcome to be a part of the housing solution with ARC and donate toward our Moving Forward program, or if you have a trailer to donate, we promise it will change the life of a family in need.

Shelter Bags & Sleeping bags

Handing out Shelter bags, sleeping bags, and other winter supplies to the homeless. Helping the unsheltered survive freezing weather. Angel Resource Connection partnered ShelterSuites Foundation from the Netherlands.
-We rented a U-Haul truck and picked up 300 Shelter bags in Portland - they just arrived on a barge from South Africa, where they are sewn.
ARC put on two events to distribute the shelter bags to the homeless, one in Seattle and one in Everett

Criminalizing the homeless is illogical, expensive, and does not work. Criminalizing homelessness does not lead to housing! Quite the opposite; it will perpetuate homelessness while exacerbating mental illness and depression. It will dig a hole so deep that the homeless will never get out once they receive $500 fines and 90-day jail sentences; everyone knows they can't pay their fine, so there will be warrants out for their arrest. With a warrant, you will not get a job or housing.

Don't criminalize homelessness! Build trust. Allow the nonprofits to serve the homeless freely instead of being banned or applying for a yearly permit to serve only on a specific day and time. We are prepared and funded, and we are a purpose-driven nonprofit with a mission to get the homeless into housing.

Let's live in a community that shows compassion to the most vulnerable and marginalized. Let's work as a city to do something we are proud of, not ashamed of. This is a human rights issue, and the city council should choose compassion and housing for the most vulnerable, not handcuffs.
