The Seattle Times ran a story about SHARE shelters (June 2nd, 2013) that operate in various churches in and around the Seattle area. The resident-run shelters offered a response to the story and sent out to MC2 and the larger community the counter points to the basics of this story. We are providing highlights to their response below; Maple Leaf Lutheran Church has offered their facility to the program since 1996 and have had a rewarding and productive relationship in that time.
