On any given night in Seattle there are more than 500 families, mostly single mothers with children, sleeping outside in places that are cold, wet and unsafe. This is just unacceptable to us.
The Seahawks Women's Association is proud to join Mary's Place as we work together to make sure No Child Sleeps Outside in Seattle this winter.
Please come alongside us and our other incredible partners - Dick's Drive-In, Vulcan, Inc., the Harrelson tamily, evo, The Seattle Space Needle & The Seattle Hospitality Group, and Evolution Projects - to help us raise $250,000 to open an emergency winter family shelter and bring Seattle families inside at night.
We need to make sure NO CHILD SLEEPS OUTSIDE in Seattle this winter. With your help, we can make our goal of moving families out of encampments, doorways, and cars and into safe, emergency shelter.
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 bring these families – moms, dads, and children – inside to warmth and safety this winter.
