Homeless to Renter (H2R) is a King County partnership between Temple Beth Am and Jewish Family Service that covers move-in costs (e.g. first/last months’ rent and deposit) for homeless families who would otherwise not be able to come up with the funds in order to get into housing.

What do we love about H2R?

  • Strong partnerships between the congregation and service provider.
  • It’s easy to manage – funds collected by the congregation go directly to families in need.
  • Opportunities to engage the entire congregation.
