Mary's Place is the first step on a journey out of homelessness for women and children. We seek to empower women and children to reclaim their lives.

Description:
Mary’s Place offers programs and services in a welcoming and accepting environment where homeless women and their children can build community, enrich their days and find resources to restore their lives. We provide eight hours of safety for women and children who are forced to leave their night shelter, cars or tents during the day. We connect women with advocates, childcare, clothing, medical services, employment, and housing. We create a positive, judgment-free environment where women nurture each other and grow together as a community. In this environment, we encourage and empower women to renew their relationships, restore their hope, and transform their lives. Once women know that they are loved just the way they are, then they can love themselves.

History:
Mary's Place was established in 1999 in response to homeless women’s cry for a complete resource center. Women were walking from service to service carrying their home on their backs trying to get their physical needs met. They were waiting in line for hours for meals, laundry, medical care, benefits, to use a free phone, to apply for housing and employment.

With a $32,000 grant from the Boeing Community Fund and the passion of a dedicated Board from the Church of Mary Magdalene, Mary’s Place was born in October 1999. Several major planning sessions involving 50+ homeless women were held to develop the program. Women were asked what they needed to rise up out of homelessness. Together they developed the structure and daily schedule that remains in effect 12 years later: two meals a day, hygiene facilities, showers, laundry, medical care, support groups and ample resources for housing, employment and benefits.
