House of Matthew Permanent & Supportive Housing

About Us

Founded in 2008, The House of Matthew started from a kitchen table by family that saw an pressing urgent need to address the emerging homelessness crisis. The House of Matthew began underfunded solely operating from help of volunteers, truly operating as a grass roots organization. They quickly realized a two significant barriers homeless individuals faced to receiving services: their fear of leaving their camp space and not having a home to return to; and in other circumstances many went unserviced due to not meeting the eligibly criteria for assistance through other community programs. In 2009, the the House of Matthew developed a Crisis Team to walk the streets of a highly populated homeless areas - South Tacoma Way and Tacoma Avenue. The Crisis Team served homeless individuals on the slide walks, bringing services to them. Many were chronically homeless, however, much of their needs were easier to manage with proper introduction to medical evaluations, medications and advocacy, and connecting them with the right supportive services to address immediate needs. As an added level of commitment, they only had one criteria to accessing services through their organization - being homeless. Seeing their approach working, they decided to continue their mission adding case mangers, mental health services and eventually added housing.
