Bishop Lewis House Participates in National Night Out Against Crime

You are here

Residents and staff from the Bishop Lewis House in Seattle participated in National Night Out, an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie. The event was designed to heighten crime prevention awareness, increase neighborhood support in anti-crime efforts, and unite our communities. It was a great opportunity to learn about crime prevention, while also celebrating the community and spending time with neighbors.

The Bishop Lewis House, a state work release Pioneer Human Services operates in Seattle, was fortunate to have the opportunity to get involved in a block party with fellow 8th Avenue neighbors. The entire area, from James St. to Madison St. in Seattle was blocked off and neighbors from the local businesses and residencies were able to celebrate together. The festivities included a barbecue, live music, jugglers, and games. Several businesses, including Bishop Lewis House had tables set up with representatives working to share information about what services or products they offer.
