2022 Placemaking Award Honoree:
Mary's Place

The Bellevue Downtown Association is proud to announce this year's Placemaking Award winner as Mary’s Place! The award will be presented at the event, recognizing the effort by Mary's Place to make Downtown Bellevue a more vibrant urban environment. In December of 2021, Mary's Place found an opportunity to use a former hotel as a temporary shelter in Downtown Bellevue. Since opening, they've provided resources, housing, employment services, and hope to the Bellevue community. The emergency shelter supports women, children and families on their journey out of homelessness.
