Their Seattle campus is currently under construction, and right next to it is an old Travelodge hotel that is now being used as a homeless shelter. Mary’s Place, a longtime non-profit that’s been helping Seattle’s homeless community, is currently operating it.
Amazon recently teamed up with Mary’s Place to turn the hotel into a free housing location for the city’s homeless population. Not only do they live there free of charge, the staff assists residents in finding employment and a permanent home. Usually the average person stays there around 86 days.
