Bread of Life Mission President Willie Parish, Jr.!
A message from Willie Parish, Jr:
For more than 75 years, Bread of Life Mission has been blessed to be able to serve Seattle’s most destitute individuals – men, women, and children – many of whom are stuck in the cycle of chronic homelessness and addictions. Homeless individuals who enter our doors in the historic Pioneer Square realize quickly that this is a place of rest and peace, a home where they are treated with dignity and individualized care as best we can provide. It is more than our duty; it is a privilege to be able to provide emergency day and overnight services, a Christ-centered addictions recovery program, and chapel fellowship to our guests and long-term residents.
This Mission was founded on Christian principles and bonded by community, one that is comprised of loyal and spirited volunteers, donors, and partners. Scores of churches from the Greater Seattle Area, as well as other organizations and local companies, have supported us throughout the years.

We have grown to over 25,000 supporters today, and each one has some God-given gift, talent, or expertise to lend. We invite you to contribute and continue discerning God’s plan for how you might be of service to others.

immensely. In those memorable eighteen months of brokenness, my prison job
in the Chaplain’s Office allowed me to heal and propelled me into Christian
ministry – and I never turned back. I myself know and believe that
