Supporting homeless women and their children through Acres of Diamonds & a ChapmanHomes home sale.

Updated: Jun 7, 2018

As Seattle's first social realtor, every sale with Chapman Homes helps a person in need at no additional cost to you. See how it works HERE.

Thank you to Krystel Porter for using Chapman Homes and Realize Giving to buy your home in Seattle! Because of this, a Non-Profit called Acres of Diamonds has received a portion of our fee to help them continue the mission of supporting homeless women and their children. Theresa and Matthew (see story below) were recently empowered through mentorship, housing, and leadership development.


Meet Theresa and Matthew:


Like so many of women that come through the doors at Acres of Diamonds non-profit, Theresa had a difficult start to her life.


As a little girl, Theresa never enjoyed the comfort and safety of a family home. Her parents struggled to provide for her, and she was the ‘adult’ to her younger brothers and sisters. She never had the chance to be a child, having to make sure her siblings were cared for and protected day and night.


Her parents eventually lost custody of her and her siblings. Theresa ended up in foster care bouncing from relative to relative. She felt lost and alone. Things became so bad that she ended up with no place to live. Alone, frightened, and openly exposed to Seattle’s unpredictable weather, Theresa sank into a deep depression.


As you can imagine, her life changed when her son Matthew was born. Desperate to provide a better life for her little boy, she reached out to Acres of Diamonds for help.


The donation from a home sale via Chapman Homes is now helping her to see the light at the end of what has been a very dark tunnel. She is actively looking for a job and working hard with her counselors to heal the deep wounds in her life. It is because of you that she is feeling safe and secure at Acres. This is something she has never felt before. She now knows that she is cared for and loved!


Theresa and Matthew still have many challenges to overcome, but with your continued prayers and support, they are on the road to rewriting their story we are confident they will find peace and happiness. The donation that came in from Chapman Homes is making things new for this mom and playing such a compassionate role in her journey.
