In 2018, our theme reflected a key value at Transitions - Growth and Wholeness. We believe each individual is a work in progress on a journey toward integration of mind, body and spirit, with the hope of financial stability, emotional, physical and spiritual peace.
Transitions would never exist without the support of the Spokane community. Are you someone who believes, like we do, that women and children deserve a chance to grow and become their whole selves? Do you believe that no woman or child should live on the street? Then you are one of us - one of the people who care.
Please consider participating as a Table Captain this year for breakfast, lunch or both! Show the community that you care by volunteering, attending the event, filling a table of eight, or sponsoring. We can't end poverty and homelessness without you. The success of this event literally keeps our doors open for the more than 1,700 women and children who turn for us to help each year.

Transitions began as four different programs which merged in 1995. Since that time the urgent need for job training was recognized and in 2008, the New Leaf Bakery Cafe job training program was founded. This year we add a sixth program with the Home Yard Cottages, permanent supportive housing for families and individuals in 24 cottages, with support services. From our unique history comes our unique participant centered mission and drive; giving every woman and child the opportunity to find success on her journey to stability and self-sufficiency. Come hear their stories and walk beside them for an hour.
Keynote speaker will be Carol Allen, Professor Emeritus WSU College of Nursing, and longtime Transitions' volunteer at Miryam's House. From her experience, Carol became in her words, "acutely aware of the impact of poverty and other social conditions on health." Throughout her fifty-year career, working with underserved populations in the United States and abroad, her constant focus remains health and social justice issues.
