Mary’s Place believes that no one’s child should sleep outside.

Since 1999, Mary’s Place has helped hundreds of women and families move out of homelessness into more stable situations. We provide safe, inclusive shelter and services that support women, children and families on their journey out of homelessness. Across nine emergency family shelters in King County, we keep struggling families together, inside, and safe when they have no place else to go, providing shelter, services, resources, community, and hope.
