After thirty years of reaching out to Seattle's most vulnerable and homeless men and women...

After providing shelter from rain and protection from the dangers of life on the streets for 10,958 consecutive nights...

After helping thousands of displaced men and women reclaim their lives...

... DESC paused and took a deep breath to commemorate and celebrate the accomplishments of three decades!

Not an organization usually given to extravagance or self congratulations, perhaps it was fitting that DESC's 30th Anniversary Gala took place on a damp and blustery Friday the 13th in November at the Seattle Marriott Waterfront Hotel - just blocks from where many DESC clients once clustered under the Alaskan Way Viaduct.

The 450 friends, advocates, and donors who came together to recognize DESC's contribution to our community raised more than $215,000!
