DEFY wrestling is partnering with Seattle based organization Mary’s Place, a group who provides safe, inclusive shelter and services that support women, children and families on their journey out of homelessness. DEFY will help raise 2 million dollars to create the new rapid exit shelter in Seattle.
At DEFY ON EDGE, we will hold a raffle that includes exclusive ring worn gear, collectibles, and other prizes, with proceeds going to Mary’s Place. Tickets can be purchased at the DEFY merch booth for $5 each, or five for $20.
There are an estimated 40,000 homeless children in Washington State.
Mary’s Place empowers families with children to move out of homelessness through a proven community model of shelter and support. We meet the immediate safety needs of our families, and provide wraparound support services to help them resolve barriers to stability. For over five years we have provided crisis response family shelter at several locations in King County, demonstrating effectiveness and an understanding and ability to meet the needs of diverse family configurations and backgrounds.
The Rapid Exit Shelter will provide shelter and services for families who have an identified housing solution that is feasible within a 30-day time period. The Rapid Exit Shelter will have a dedicated Diversion Specialist on site who will work with families daily to assist them in making progress toward their housing goal.
