About Northwest Hospitality
Goals & Values
The main goal of Northwest Hospitality is to alleviate the suffering of our homeless neighbors through simple, effective programs and encourage participation in other local services that can help bring people out of poverty. As we accomplish this goal, we serve our supporters by being a transparent, effective charity that embodies integrity and efficiency in both our programs and how we operate.
A Sincere Note
NWH proudly acknowledges that many of the people our programs aim to benefit are in their current situation for many unfortunate reasons. From people just down on their luck to those affected by health conditions and disorders, addictions and criminal histories, our mission deliberately excludes any form of judgement. We are here to serve our neighbors - every last one.
We are not, however, blind to the challenges that these issues can create. Our program attempts to avoid enabling behaviors that negatively affect those we are trying to help. To this end, our hospitality cards are supplied by Subway so that alcohol and tobacco purchases are not possible. This is in no way intended to be mean-spirited; we hope that by establishing such policies, our neighbors can be better served and our donors can feel more confident in the help they are able to provide.

Founder & Director
I'm Anton, founder and director of Northwest Hospitality. This role is helping me focus on my passion for philanthropy but I have been blessed with an abundance of passions and interests. A BS in Biology from the University of Washington allowed me to spend many years working in laboratories ranging from histology and microbiology to immunology. When I wanted to work closer with patients, I made a career switch and became an EMT.
That was 4 years ago and I'm now part-time in the ambulance because I'm full-time at home with my sons and preparing for PA school applications. I have a children's book, Shaky, published and available on Amazon. NWH has been a growing obsession for some time now.
Northwest Hospitality is a primary focus for me now. If I can grow it into something half as big as what's in my head then we'll be able to help a lot of people.
