SEATTLE -- YouthCare, a private nonprofit agency that provides services to families and homeless youth, has announced the completion of their $4.8 million capital campaign. The campaign, named "Building a New House on the Corner," funded the development of the agency's new building, which offers housing for 20 youth and 10 families, as well as a permanent home for YouthCare.

Through public-private partnerships, YouthCare was able to secure $3.2 million in public funds to begin the project, with the remaining $1.6 million raised entirely from private sources. The naming campaign gift came from the Kenneth and Marleen Alhadeff Charitable Foundation. Other leadership gifts included: The Wood Family Foundation, SAFECO, Federal Home Loan Bank, The Boeing Company, The Employee Community Fund of Boeing, the Pride Foundation Threshold Fund, Microsoft, the Norcliffe Foundation and the YouthCare Board of Directors.

The final gift, in the amount of $61,000, came from the William H. Gates Foundation. YouthCare was able to assure that a tremendous increase in housing options for families and homeless youth will be available for many years.
