Our goal is to help people overcome the cycle of homelessness through a Christ-centered recovery model with God's help.

Founded in 1939 towards the end of The Great Depression, Mavel Sherman started Bread of Life in a building on the corner of Washington and Occidental Street in downtown Seattle.

The Bread of Life Mission exists to overcome the cycle of homelessness in men’s and women’s lives through a Christ-centered recovery model with God’s help.
