Windermere Shoreline Foundation Program

Vision House and Windermere Shoreline

Windermere Shoreline donation to Vision House

If you’ve bought or sold a home through Windermere Real Estate in Shoreline, you’re a part of the Windermere Foundation, and you’ve made a positive difference in the lives of your neighbors in need.

Our Mission
For the past 25 years, the Windermere Foundation has donated a portion of the proceeds from every home purchased or sold towards supporting low-income and homeless families.

Housing Is Our Business
Helping homeless and low-income families is a natural extension of our business. Non-profit agencies receiving Windermere Foundation dollars have furnished emergency and transitional housing and much more.

Creating Opportunities For Low-Income And Homeless Children
A significant portion of Windermere Foundation dollars go toward programs that help children, providing basic necessities such as new school shoes, socks, and underwear.  We believe that building a child’s self-esteem is an investment in our future.

For the 2013 calendar year, Windermere Shoreline has continued the tradition of donating our office foundation funds to local Shoreline organizations. Vision House, is a Christian-based non-profit that has been successfully providing transitional housing, child care and support services to homeless mothers and their children, and separately to men recovering from drug or alcohol addiction, for nearly 25 years. With the opening of a new facility in Shoreline the end of 2013, the agency now owns and operates five transitional housing facilities in Renton, Burien and Shoreline. All facilities have been built debt-free! Vision House can now support approximately 180 individuals per year.

In Dale Turner Checkaddition, Windermere Shoreline donated foundation funds to the local Dale Turner YMCA, which supports local children, families and seniors in our community.

A warm thank you to our broker’s, our clients and our community.
