Another Heartwarming Story from the Windermere Foundation

I received this from our Foundation Director in Seattle. How wonderful that we get to do this for people! I'm so proud to represent the Johnson office on the Board.

Greetings from the Windermere Foundation,

Last week I received a call from a mother who was looking for help with her rent. She explained to me that if she lost her apartment she would be homeless and would never be able to afford the move-in expenses IF and when she found another apartment. As you can imagine, she was very concerned not only for her sake but for the sake of her two children. She explained that she had called over a dozen social service agencies only to hear, “Sorry, we can’t help you, we are out of funds.” With each social service agency suggesting she call another, her fear began to deepen. Luckily, the Windermere Foundation was able to provide financial assistance, via the children’s school counselor, and the family was able to remain in their apartment.

Every Windermere Realtor contributes a bit from every transaction. We give to many larger local organizations such as New Avenues for Youth and The Community Warehouse.
If you know someone who needs help, please let me know. We do things as simple as providing shoes, coats, and school supplies, or paying for field trips.
