Childhaven

2019 Lemayian Lunch Series

In 2017, we launched our first Lemayian (which means “blessed” in Swahili) trip to Kenya to increase awareness about the projects we support there through the foundation.

Now we are bringing the concept back home and offering a series of site visits to Seattle non-profits followed by lunch with the organization’s leadership. Please contact Philanthropic Advisor Molly Norton for more information or to RSVP. Spots are limited. Tours and lunches will be last approximately two hours.

Childhaven offers early learning, early intervention, and outpatient mental health services to children and families in King County. Committed to interdisciplinary wraparound care that respects ongoing family needs, Childhaven collaborates in partnership with the families they serve to ensure positive outcomes that are individualized and culturally relevant. CEO Jon Botten will lead the conversation.

Mindfulness for Nonprofit Leaders

Mindfulness-based Emotional and Social Intelligence (MESI) is a training program developed to enable our employees, clients, and community to hone the skills and practices that help us be fully present and act intentionally in our lives and relationships.

MESI focuses on self-awareness, intentional management of emotions, recognition of other people’s emotions, and compassion. Teams with this skillset are more focused, more effective, and happier as a result. And those benefits translate directly to your clients.

The results we’ve seen have been so powerful that it’s led us to adapt and share MESI workshops and curriculum with other organizations in the community. The workshop explores the fundamentals of mindfulness and the four components of emotional and social intelligence (self-awareness, self-regulation, empathy, and relationship management).

We’re looking forward to hosting this workshop for nonprofit leaders to help them build a “MESI Toolbelt” that can help their board, employees, beneficiaries and organizations thrive.

Rainier Valley Food Bank fulfills its mission to “nourish with good food, empower with knowledge, and serve with compassion” by offering on-site food distribution, home delivery, to-go bags, and a backpack program for help troubleshooting life circumstances that contribute to a need for food. We will tour with the incredibly knowledgeable and dynamic Miguel Jimenez, and then head over to Nurturing Roots Farm, a community farming program that educates youth and the local community on healthy food choices, for a picnic lunch.
