    Since 1921, Uplift Northwest has helped rebuild the lives of thousands of men and women in greater Seattle with support programs that connect people who are unemployed or homeless with job opportunities, training, certifications, hot meals, free eyeglasses, transitional housing and housing assistance, shower & laundry services and referrals to support services. These essential wrap-around services encourage self-reliance in our workers and a sense of dignity. We support our men and women every step of the way to ensure they can become job ready. 60% of our participants are homeless, 16% are veterans, 59% are people of color, 18% are supporting children and 20% are women. In 2014 Uplift Northwest launched a Temporary Staffing program to connect workers to local businesses on a temp-to-hire basis. The organization acts as a staffing agency while our workers enjoy the benefits of gaining valuable work experience with prominent businesses in the area.
