About the Fellowship
The Bailey-Boushay House-Humanity in Action Fellowship provided Senior Fellows the opportunity to work on issues related to healthcare and homelessness in Seattle. Senior Fellows worked with leaders at Bailey-Boushay House to research and document the experiences of homeless individuals receiving care through the institution with a goal of better understanding the root causes of poverty and homelessness in the greater Seattle area. This fellowship involved a significant amount of contact with the LGBTQ population and individuals challenged by end-of-life diagnoses, chemical dependence, mental health conditions and sex work. Senior Fellows worked collaboratively with the Outpatient Program of nine social workers and the leadership of Bailey-Boushay House.
The Bailey-Boushay House-Humanity in Action Fellowship was a three month opportunity offered in 2017 and 2018. One Senior Fellow was selected each year.
