Community Meeting on Mary’s Place buying former Lakeside Milam is May 14

Local non-profit Mary’s Place – which provides housing for homeless women, children, and families – announced that they are exploring the purchase of the former Lakeside Milam Recovery Center in Burien, and will be holding a community meeting on Monday, May 14, 2018.

This free, open, public meeting will run from 6 – 7 p.m. in the Multipurpose Room at the Burien Library (400 SW 152nd Street).

Residents are invited to attend and learn more about Mary’s Place. Food will be served.

Modeled after their successful family centers in North Seattle, Northshore, downtown Seattle, and White Center; the Burien location would provide housing and employment resources during the day and shelter for approximately 200 moms, dads, and kids each night.

The building, a former drug and alcohol addiction treatment center with private rooms, a commercial kitchen, large common areas, medical facilities, and parking could become a Mary’s Place Family Center to provide services for single and two-parent families experiencing homelessness in the community.

The location would also be a home for Mary’s Place Popsicle Place program, which provides services for homeless families with medically complex or critically ill children.

The property, located at 12845 Ambaum Blvd in Burien, is just over 23,000 square feet on 4.3 acres.

“Mary’s Place has been looking for a location in South King County to meet the needs of the growing numbers of families that we see coming from those communities, many with children in the Highline School District,” said Marty Hartman, Mary’s Place CEO. “We are looking forward to sharing information about our program with the community, answering questions, and addressing any concerns.”
