Over 550 families sleep outside in Seattle every night. The homelessness crisis in Seattle cannot be solved overnight, but we don't have to wait for the city budget to make sure that every child has a safe place to sleep
We need to make sure NO CHILD SLEEPS OUTSIDE in Seattle this winter. With your help, we can attain our goal of moving families out of encampents, doorways and cars and into safe, emergency shelter.
Please join these amazing local sponsors: Dick’s Drive-In, evo, Vulcan Inc., The Space Needle/Seattle Hospitality Group, Evolution Projects, and the Harrelson family to help Mary's Place raise over $250,000 to open a crisis-response winter night shelter to create safe emergency housing for Seattle families.
- For every $10,000 we raise, 25 families can get the down payments they need to move in to transitional or permanent housing, opening emergency shelter beds for 25 additional families currently sleeping outside.
- $120,000 will provide over 10,000 nights of shelter for families currently sleeping outside.
- $200,000 and we can fund Mary’s Place ongoing work to provide emergency shelter and services to the 160+ women and children who come to their door every day.
- $250,000 will allow us to open a crisis-response winter night shelter to bring families sleeping in places not meant for habitation inside. .
Mary’s Place does amazing work empowering more than 150 homeless women, children, and families to reclaim their lives each day by providing shelter, nourishment, resources, healing and hope in a safe community.
But still there are families being turned away. We need to do more. We need YOUR HELP to bring these families – moms, dads, and children – inside to warmth and safety this winter.
