Our Work In The World
Vision House is a Christian social service agency operating in Shoreline that provides transitional housing with supportive services over to help families experiencing homelessness move from crisis to stability and self-sufficiency. Vision House fights to help break the cycle of homelessness for families with children. Race doesn’t matter. Neither does religion, national origin, gender, or sexual preference . . . every person deserves a healthy home. It’s not a privilege. But a basic human right. Brookview partners with Vision House by providing needed donations, as well as sending volunteers for mentoring and service projects. If you would like to learn more about Vision House, click here.

THE NOURISHING NETWORK
Edmonds School District & Brier, WA
In the Edmonds School District (the area that Brookview Church is in) over 600 students are homeless. Often these students leave school Friday and do not have another meal until Monday morning. We partner with The Nourishing Network to provide easy to prepare foods that students take home to help with hunger over the weekend. Additionally, we partner with another local church and the PTA at Cedar Way Elementary School about one mile away from the church to provide a monthly food pantry that families in need can receive food and paper products.

La Croix & Gonnaives, Haiti
Brookview has been working in Haiti since 2008. While we have done many things to come alongside of the Haitian church there, including having teams travel there to do relief work, one of the most significant ways we are helping people to help themselves is through investing in water projects that exceed the scope of financial possibility for the average Haitian community. Since 2013, we have drilled and maintained two major wells and impacted the communities surrounding those wells. We are passionate about serving in Haiti in such a way that we are providing a hand-up rather than a handout. Because of the unstable government and violence happening there, we have had to suspend our work. We hope that we will be able to return to this partnership soon.
The larger family that Brookview is a part of, called The Christian & Missionary Alliance, currently has 700 workers who serve in 70 different nations to care for the sick, befriend the lonely, and introduce people to Jesus through relationships. Our church had the opportunity to work in Russia and Ukraine, in 2017 and 2018 when a need for help came our way and we currently support field workers in Cambodia. We will be taking a team trip with Brookview families to serve in Ecuador in late 2024. We are excited about future international opportunities we might have to go to new places and meet new people with the focus on serving and loving as Jesus would.
