Our Story

Since 1921, we’ve been working to help rebuild lives through jobs in the greater Puget Sound region.

We help those experiencing homelessness and unemployment get placed in temporary and permanent jobs, as well as provide the vital support services they need to be successful at work, including meals, showers, laundry, vision care, and transitional housing.

If you don’t have a job, you don’t have hope. If you don’t have hope, what do you really have?” George Roberts, Founder REDF

Our Process

Walk in through our doors and receive a hot meal, a shower, and chance to use our laundry facilities for free. Breakfast is 6:15-7:00 and lunch is 12:00-1:30.

Fill out a work application and background check form with the help of our friendly staff.

Learn about our orientation schedule and how to become job ready.

If you need glasses or to get your vision tested, you can make an appointment to see our eye doctors who are able to provide exams and glasses for free.

Orientations take place every Tuesday from 8:00am – 11:00am in our upstairs computer lab. These orientations will teach you about our program and how you’ll find work, get paid, and get what you need to be job ready.

You will have an opportunity to meet with our staff to make a personal achievement plan. Do you want to work part-time? Full-time? We’ll help make a plan that works for you.

Learn about our STEP program and how to earn better pay and more job opportunities by working consistently with MCC.

Learn about program requirements and expectations for specific jobs. Do you need a food handler’s card? We can get you that! Need safety equipment? We can help you there, too!

We will find work that fits your needs. We have temporary, long-term, and permanent placements available for a wide variety of industries.

If you need help getting to and from a job site, we will provide bus passes to help you get there on time.

Nobody can work on an empty stomach. That’s why we provide our workers with a sack lunch each day they go out on a job.

Many jobs require black shoes, black pants, work boots, or rain coats. We have a stock of equipment to help you be job ready.
