Children's Center

Our many youth programs enable our young people to simply enjoy being children at a time that has the potential to be very stressful and traumatic. Often times becoming homeless puts great stress and burden on children of all ages. So we work hard to provide them with access to positive and fun activities that can inspire them and let them know they are loved by God and this community.

The Children’s Center is a completely equipped, professionally staffed facility for the young children of the families staying at Mary’s Place. It is open during the afternoons for the children to play and interact in a positive and supportive environment. There is also a fenced-in outdoor play area. The children are all smiles as they visit the snack room, craft area, hopscotch, wagons & cars, and playground all designed to brighten their day and help them explore and learn.
