Vision House, a Shoreline-based organization that is building housing for homeless women and children, reports that Campbell-Nelson Motors of Edmonds has agreed to match donations dollar for dollar — up to $50,000 — for the project.

According to our friends at Shoreline Area News, the Jacob’s Well complex is being built with help from hundreds of volunteers and dozens of churches, companies and individual donors. The first of the two buildings in Shoreline’s Ballinger neighborhood has been framed, the roof is on and the windows have been installed.

“Since we build our facilities debt-free, our next goal is to raise $327,000 for the fire sprinkler system and the electrical and heating systems. You can make a donation to Jacob’s Well and it will be matched dollar for dollar up to $56,000 by Campbell Nelson Motors of Edmonds,” the organization said.

Jacob’s Well will house 20 families of homeless women and children, with support services on-site.

The next major fundraising event will be the Building Hope Dessert Fundraiser on Oct. 15, at the Edmonds Center for the Arts. More information on that event is here.

  1. Thank you, Campbell-Nelson. As a past Legal Services Attorney I have seen first hand how having stable shelter is one of the deciding factors allowing women to move from state reliance to self reliance. And, when mother’s do well, kids do well.
