Mary’s Place Wins 2013 Non-Profit Of The Year

Madrona Presbyterian Church

Mary’s Place, sponsor of the Julia’s Place Night Shelter at Madrona Grace Presbyterian Church, has been named the 2013 Non-Profit of the Year by the Greater Seattle Business Association. Mary’s Place and its affiliated shelters are the only shelters in King County that accept homeless women with children. They provide basic services such as hot showers and laundry, along with resources to help women lift themselves out of homelessness.

Julia’s Place hosts five families (men, women, and children) overnight while they wait for permanent housing, and is staffed by volunteers who stay the night and serve dinner. The “Madrona Moms” community group has signed up to serve at the shelter one week per quarter.

The shelter is looking for volunteers to staff the remaining 12 weeks. For more information about how you can help at Mary’s Place, please contact Alyson Moon at alyson@marysplaceseattle.org or at (206) 621-8474.
