We Need Your Help

We use the funds raised from People Who Care to help fund our efforts in Spokane, working to end poverty and homelessness for women and children in Spokane. 

Hear from inspiring women who have participated in our programs and moved their lives forward; get updated on our status via our Executive Director; and take advantage of the opportunity to invest in the community every woman and child deserves.

See you (virtually) October 14th at Noon!

Our Values

Every year, we choose a different theme from our core values for our People Who Care Event. This year, we have chosen to focus on “Community”. 

Respect for Human Dignity

We believe in the dignity and inherent worth of individuals and respect their right to self-determination.


We believe that the fullness of each person is realized in relationship with others.

Growth & 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.


We believe in advocating for what is right, honest and moral both for whom we serve and with whom we serve.

Our Mission

Transitions works to end poverty and homelessness for women and children in Spokane.

We pursue this mission through the operation of the Women’s Hearth, Transitional Living Center, EduCare, Miryam’s House, New Leaf Kitchen & Café, and Home Yard Cottages.

About PWC 2021

People Who Care is Transitions’ largest fundraiser of the year, helping support all of our local efforts throughout the rest of the year. Traditionally, this has been a live event with guest speakers, awards, and breakfast or lunch. This year will be entirely virtual!

The good news is, there is no limit to the number of attendees in 2021. Join us October 14th at 12:00pm to get a glimpse into the world of Transitions, hear inspiring stories from the community, and help support our vision in Spokane!


Sister Sue has been a key part of our People Who Care events throughout the years, and a huge benefit to the event as a table captain.

Over the years, she has volunteered in a variety of ways to help support the work of Transitions. Becoming a table captain is one of those ways that you can help too! If you are looking for a way to get involved and help your community, becoming a Table Captain is an easy way to do just that!

Become a Table Captain

Table Captains play a key role in our People Who Care event, pledging to fill a table with friends. Become a Table Captain and invite your friends and family to attend this year’s event. It’s easy–simply bring 7 guests to sit at your virtual “table” of 8 or fill multiple “tables” since having a virtual event means you’re not limited at all!

Help Us Help Spokane

We know you want to help your community during this challenging time, and we would love your help to make this event successful. How can you help us?

• Experience the event!

• Volunteer as a Table Captain and bring your friends, family, co-workers, anyone!


Thank you to everyone who supports Transitions, both for PWC and throughout the year. We couldn’t do what we do without you. From us, the individuals we work to assist, and the entire community, we thank you!

A special thanks to our “Community” and “Respect for Human Dignity” level sponsors:
