Meaningful Movies In Kirkland LogoNorthlake Unitarian Universalist Church screens a “Meaningful Movie” on the third Friday of each month. On May 19, 2017, the film will be “The Long Night”. Set in Seattle, the feature documentary film gives voice and meaning to the crisis of minors who are forced and coerced into the American sex trade. The film weaves together the stories of seven people whose lives are forever changed by domestic minor sex trafficking. The showing starts at 7PM at NUUC. Admission is free; donations accepted.

Can You Help New Residents Move Into Athene?

Imagine Housing LogoAt the KIN Meeting in May, we learned that Imagine Housing is planning now for the grand opening of Athene, the new affordable senior housing project in Totem Lake. They expect to open at the end of November and be filled by the end of December. There will be 91 units, 20 of which are reserved for seniors who had been homeless.

Imagine Housing will be looking for in-kind donations such as welcome baskets (household items and gift cards), snacks during move-in time, kitchen equipment, and community meals at Athene. They will also have a Christmas gift program for new residents, which will need to ramp up soon after opening. And since many of their new residents will have been previously homeless, they will be looking for donations of gently-used furniture to help people get started in their new homes.

Individuals and congregations who are interested in helping can contact Amanda Sherry at amandas@imaginehousing.org. KIN will also be working on coordinated efforts!
