Description: Mary's Place offers transitional apartments for homeless families with children. This building was named after and dedicated to the Blessed Mother Mary. This beautiful complex was born out of love, compassion, and concern for women and children in poverty. Mary's Place was built entirely with private donations and these 100 fully-furnished apartments give safety and hope to all who occupy them.

Each apartment has a bathroom and kitchen, phone with voicemail, and television. There are 68 large apartments which can accommodate 5–12 people and 32 smaller units which house 3 to 5 people. All together, we can house more than 600 people in need at any given time. Every effort has been made to ensure the security of the residents with the lobby staffed 24 hours a day and entry by ID card only. Strict rules help maintain a hopeful and peaceful atmosphere for all residents.

On the main floor, Mary's Place residents have access to a free laundry facility, two large classrooms where tutoring is offered Monday-Wednesday, computer room, activity rooms, a playroom, meeting spaces, a chapel, and a medical clinic. A large backyard with a playground, basketball courts, and picnic tables give the residents the opportunity to feel at home.
Mary's Place has four full-time Family Advocates who work directly with families on goal planning and ensuring progress at becoming self-sufficient and obtaining housing. They also work with the children offering tutoring, mentoring, and enrichment activities. The Immaculate Heart of Mary Mother of Christ sisters are a part of our staff and work with the families and children in many different areas.
Mary's Place is here to offer support for struggling families and to enable those who want to improve their lives. For this we offer money management, case management, and resources to deal with the unique issues each family is facing. Volunteer Job-Seekers come regularly to help residents search for employment. Families stay an average of 3 months and parents and children are connected with resources to help them become stable.
