Marysville expands transitional housing program

In partnership with the Everett Gospel Mission and the local faith community, Marysville Extended Shelter Homes (MESH) provide transitional housing for formerly homeless people who have completed rehabilitation programs and are ready to live independently.

“None of us alone can provide all the supportive resources that it takes to help address the growing problem of homelessness,” said Mayor Jon Nehring. “But coming together, using the resources we each bring to the table, we can make a difference. It’s my hope that other community partners will come forward.”

As its Day of Caring project in conjunction with the United Way of Snohomish County, on Sept. 23 several City employees volunteered to clear debris and overgrowth outside and scrub the houses inside. Several local businesses, churches and other volunteers furnished and decorated the homes.

MESH homes provide shelter for men, women and children. Three men living in the first MESH home are successfully working toward their goals. Tenants have completed programs through Everett Gospel Mission, have an income and pay rent, and can participate in activities to connect with neighbors and community. As tenants gain independence in the future, it will provide the opportunity for others to take their places.
