All are welcome to enjoy Eggs Benedict, Bloody Marys and Burgers and Fries for a great cause this Tuesday, October 20th. Lost Lake Cafe and Lounge, as a part of their Lost Lake Cares Campaign, will donate 10% of all of their proceeds for 24 hours to the Women’s Education Program (WEP). This amazing program is a clean, sober, and safe community for homeless and formerly homeless women to enjoy a hearty breakfast and free learning activities. WEP fosters individual and collective creativity in a warm and welcoming academic environment and engages the adult learner in collaborative educational opportunities to honor diversity of experience and expression.
The Women’s Education Program at Antioch University Seattle thrives on community, which may explain why its efforts to serve homeless and formerly homeless women in downtown Seattle have been so successful. The program runs 50 weeks a year, closing for the last 2 weeks in December. Every Thursday a warm breakfast and a room filled with welcome and comfort continues the spirit of support and friendship that has drawn participants for sixteen years. Learn more here.
