Building community to end poverty

Each year, more than 55,000 King County residents come to Solid Ground to address urgent food and housing needs, and build skills to overcome poverty and thrive.

Solid Ground works to undo racism and other oppressions to change the institutional practices and policies that perpetuate poverty. Through 40 years of innovation, partnership and action, we have helped create many of our community’s most effective anti-poverty programs. And built on the firsthand experience of people living on low incomes in Washington State, Solid Ground’s Advocacy efforts help develop and pass landmark legislation.
