A generous community supports our annual budget of $380,000. Our funding comes from
diverse sources: In 2011, 65% of our revenue came from generous individuals, businesses,
faith communities, and service groups; 18% from private foundations; 13% from Skagit
County; and 4% from federal and city grants. Skagit County has committed to funding
20% of our original 2012 annual budget. Our foundation partners include the Jack
& Shirley McIntyre Foundation, Medina Foundation, Episcopal Charities, Seattle Foundation,
Lutheran Community Foundation The Knoke Fund, Tulalip and Swinomish Tribes, and The
Employees Community Fund of Boeing Puget Sound.

Welcome to Friendship House! Our homeless shelters and Community Kitchen are located
in the beautiful Skagit Valley. For 26 years, we have been fulfilling our mission
to reflect the heart of God by feeding, sheltering, clothing, and healing those in
need. We support people in their journeys of transformation and triumph. Integral
to this process are the hundreds of residents, volunteers, and donors who make Friendship
House not just a place, but a community. Thank You!
