Sharing a Bowl of Soup and a Story

Since I’m back two months early from my Alaska paddle plans, I’m now shifting my attention to bringing some nutritious meals to the hungry people who live on our streets. I’ve been knocking on restaurant and grocery doors in an effort to involve others. Three restaurants have agreed to help us out with a pot … Continue reading

WHAT MAN AMONG YOU, IF HE HAS A HUNDRED SHEEP AND LOSES ONE OF THEM, DOES NOT LEAVE THE NINETY-NINE IN THE PASTURE AND GO AFTER THE ONE THAT IS LOST, UNTIL HE FINDS IT?

Extreme Sobriety is not trying to solve the homeless crisis in Seattle. Rather, we're searching the streets for just one man or woman who is reaching out for help. He or she is somewhere out there.

Homelessness in Seattle

In the Seattle King County area, the homeless problem is growing with more than 10,000 people living on the streets or in shelters. Homelessness and drug addiction is a dreadful social illness plaguing the nation. More than 1 million people in the U.S. are homeless, with approximately 30 percent of these people suffering from mental illness and 50 percent chronically addicted to drugs, alcohol or both. Approximately 70 percent of homeless veterans are estimated to be substance abusers. Extreme Sobriety commends the organizations that provide caring services to these folks. It takes a great deal of time, hard work, resources, and heart to do what they do. We are grateful and touched for every homeless individual or addict that responds to this care. Our own Steve Rhoades, formerly homeless himself, was helped by Seattle's Compass Center over twenty years ago. He is now regularly walking the same streets, looking for someone else who has his hand out - someone who is reaching for the same help that he himself once received.
