Marysville invests $200K in community service programs

Five local human services programs will receive city funds to help support community services that are important to and used by Marysville residents. The Marysville City Council approved the grants at its May 23 Council meeting. 

Because grant requests outnumbered available funds, the city focused awards on providing basic human needs. 

LINC NW Cold Weather Shelter$55,000
St. Joseph's House$55,000
Saint Vincent de Paul$35,000
Salvation Army of Marysville Tulalip$30,000
Marysville Community Food Bank$25,000

LINC NW, home to The Center at North Marysville in the Lakewood neighborhood, operates the Marysville Cold Weather Shelter in partnership with Snohomish County. With this $55,000 grant it intends to expand those services to offer heat- and smoke-sheltering assistance during hot summer weather with cooling stations, cold electrolyte-based beverages and frozen snacks in partnership with the Marysville and Smokey Point Sno-Isle Libraries and other community organizations. 

St. Joseph’s House is the only organization of its kind in the Marysville community, offering free essential clothing items for individuals and families experiencing financial hardship. As demand increases, SJH is outgrowing its current space and looking for a larger facility in Marysville. The city’s $55,000 grant will help pay for moving, expansion and current operating expenses. 

Saint Vincent de Paul strives to fill a gap that other agencies cannot. Services include rental and utility assistance; payment for medical needs; and basic assistance including food, clothing, heat and transportation. The city granted $35,000 in support of these services. 

The Salvation Army of Marysville Tulalip received $30,000 for its Pathways of Hope program focused on housing security and homeless prevention. Services include rental and utility assistance; move-in assistance with first, last and deposit; and emergency housing for local students and families. 

The Marysville Community Food Bank was granted $25,000 in support of its Food for Thought student backpack program, senior home delivery services, holiday Toy Store and A Simple Gesture community donation pickup. The food bank distributes more than 90,000 pounds of food to about 2,800 people in need each month.
