“Stepping Into Homelessness”: Domestic Violence and the Power of Empathy

Many families in our community face “an untenable choice”: Staying in a domestic violence situation, or leaving and stepping into homelessness. Vince Matulionis of United Way of King County tells colleague Catherine Hinrichsen of Seattle University about how empathy for that experience drives his work. From being inspired by progress, to feeling frustration at the sights of struggle on our streets, to realizing the power of empathy in building a movement, Vince breaks it down: what it’s like to work every day to end homelessness.

This interview, recorded at YWCA Opportunity Place in Seattle, was featured on the Firesteel blog post, “Stepping Into Homelessness.”
