~ A Little About Mary's House ~

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 eight 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.

Meals, showers, and laundry facilities–children are connected with schools. In the evening, families in shelter eat dinner, do homework, socialize, and prepare for the week ahead. Each day, Housing Specialists work with families to address barriers and empower parents to build family stability, secure housing, and prepare for employment. Kids do homework, participate in fun and enriching activities, and go on outings and adventures in Kids Club.

Children with life threatening illnesses should not be living in cars and tents awaiting chemo or dialysis. Families who have lost everything in the struggle to get their child well have a place to receive care and support in shelter at Mary's Place Popsicle Place program.

The women’s drop-in Day Center in downtown Seattle provides meals, showers, laundry, access to resources, safety and relationship to over a hundred women each day.

~ A Little About True Colors United ~

Over a decade ago, our eyes were opened to the fact that up to 40% of the 1.6 million youth experiencing homelessness identify as LGBTQ. So, in 2008, we founded True Colors United (formerly the True Colors Fund) and went on a different kind of tour – visiting homeless shelters, community centers, and other service providers to learn all we could about the issue.

Communities and youth homelessness service providers want to be safe and welcoming for LGBTQ youth, but often don’t have the knowledge or resources to do so – creating barriers for these youth to get the support they need. True Colors United fills that space by offering free training and resources on how to meet the needs of LGBTQ youth experiencing homelessness. We also advocate in government and media to help ensure critical funding and services for all youth, and create opportunities for youth who have experienced homelessness to be key leaders in the effort to end the problem.

Whether you know it or not, you’re a part of the solution, too. People often think that, because they don’t work at a service provider, they can’t make a difference. The reality is: Everyone can make a difference! LGBTQ youth experiencing homelessness interact with more than just the folks working at shelters. They also go to coffee shops and libraries, ride public transportation, use the Internet… To put it simply: They live life! We all share the same world. Now what will you do to make it a better one?

Sincerely,

Jamey Lionhart , Spark Of Kindness Crew, Carolyn & Tony Scott
