Here is information about the Open House - Friday, October 8th.

What is the purpose of the Open House?

The Open House is an invitation for the public to visit the newly renovated lower level, which will house our youth STRONG Program, prior to young people living in the space. Local high school students designed the “perfect bedroom” and local businesses brought those designs to life. Each room is unique, and welcoming, and more importantly represents a new start for a child experiencing homelessness.

Tours will be self-guided so individuals can move at a comfortable pace and allow for adequate spacing between guests. Staff and volunteers will be strategically located to answer questions and provide assistance if needed.

Refreshments will be served outside - under tents with spaced seating available.

Who should attend?
Any individual, agency or business interested in learning how our community can help homeless and runaway youth.

Do we need to register or RSVP?
No. The event day runs from 10am to 6pm to accommodate individual schedules

Is there a cost or fee to attend?
No. But contributions are greatly appreciated. Mary’s Shelter is a 501c3 organization which relies on the generosity of the community to support our programs with monetary or in-kind donations. You can find our Wish List here.
