Stay a Night, Give a Night

Help provide shelter for homeless families with your stay in Seattle

A Benefit For

Local Supporters


Horizon's "Stay a Night, Give a Night" campaign allocates tourism dollars otherwise spent on expensive hotels or vacation rentals to help those who need it most: families and children experiencing homelessness. Mary’s Place can provide a child with one night of food, shelter, and stability for just $14. Stay with a Seattleite during your visit to Seattle, and as a thanks for their generous hospitality, fund one night's shelter for a homeless child. In Seattle alone, an estimated 1,200 kids sleep outside every night. Mary's Place has a proven record of empowering homeless women, children and families to reclaim their lives by providing shelter and resources.

For travelers, there's a clear win: cost savings compared to a vacation rental or hotel, in addition to experiencing Seattle with the help of a local.
