Companis Connects

We love it when this happens!

Sometimes we amaze ourselves at Companis! Like when we read this awesome story in Real Change Homeless Empowerment Project newspaper, where Companis Worker Merry Nye is placed, about a new pilot project of the Jubilee Women's Center, where Companis Worker Marti Spicer is placed.

Exploring meditative traditions

Companis convened a hands on training session exploring several different meditative traditions today, one in an ongoing series of personal and professional development opportunities we call "Companis Connects." Understanding that in this time when the ground of our common life seems to be shifting under our very feet, it is crucial that we find ways to center and sustain ourselves, Worker Engagement Director Peter Jabin brought in guest presenters

Companis Worker placed with homeless outreach program

We're thrilled to announce Companis Worker Martha Hopler will begin a renewed one-year placement with the "Shared Breakfast" program at First Church.

Companis + You = Be the change you want to see

Congratulations to the many Companis friends and supporters who participated in Saturday’s historic Women's March on Seattle celebrating equal rights for all. You made your voices heard, and you put our leaders on notice that many, many Americans care about protecting our civil and human rights. You made history, but as awesome as that is, it’s time to take the next step by plugging into an organized effort to create the change you want to see.

Gratitude for his 5 years of Companis service

Much appreciation to Companis Worker Phil Mervin for completing 5 years of service at Pride Foundation. Phil brought his database expertise and years of experience as a financial manager to Pride's mission of expanding opportunities and advancing full equality for LGBTQ people across the Northwest.

Today's history lesson

On February 19, 1942, our Japanese-American neighbors lost their civil rights when Executive Order 9066 enabled the government to move them from their homes to internment camps, where 120,000 people spent 3 years. In remembrance of the 75th anniversary of EO 9066, Seattle First Baptist Church will end their service this Sunday, Feb.

Strong words

“Give me your tired, your poor,

Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,

The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.

Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,

I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
