⇒ Our MISSION is to create hope and opportunity for homeless Kitsap County residents by providing affordable, permanent housing and other resources that promote self-sufficiency.
⇒ Our GOAL is to provide stable housing and opportunity for those in unfortunate circumstances such as poverty, domestic violence, debilitating physical/mental health, or homelessness.
⇒ Our FOCUS, is on the vulnerable category of seniors that are disabled (mentally and/or physically), and single mothers with young children that are facing homelessness.
Kitsap Homes of Compassion also advocates for the creation of more affordable housing inventory of all types. It encourages research into creative approaches to find viable, sustainable, healthy, safe, permanent solutions to housing households with lower income.
Homelessness in Kitsap County has grown to an unacceptable level. Urgent action is needed to be taken to preserve life, especially of our vulnerable, elderly and disabled population. The inhumane conditions of the homeless in our modern, wealthy society demand immediate steps be taken by the citizens of our county to end this unnecessary, meaningless suffering.
Some have said that KHOC has declared war on homelessness in Kitsap County, taking a “Gorilla Warfare Approach,” using all means at our disposal, and not quitting until we are victorious.
Kitsap Homes of Compassion is currently operated by a highly qualified, trained, fully volunteer staff.
