MARY'S PLACE - Empowering homeless women, children, and families to reclaim their lives.
When I was in acupuncture school I was taught that when a child is born the focus should be on the mother - if you take care of the mother, the child will be fine. I feel this is the case throughout childhood. If we support the mother, and see that her needs are met, this is one of the best things we can do for the child, and for the community. This is why I am drawn to Mary's Place, an organization in Seattle that provides shelter for homeless women, children and families. Maybe you would like to learn more about them too.
