Welcome to conversations. Tiny is heavily today on the show we're gonna learn all about Beck's place. We have Melanie Bryant she's the founder and board president I know you're in the community doing a lot of great work Melanie. But we thank you for taken timeout to talk to us today. Thank you I'm so excited to be here. Yeah I don't really hard very unique and innovative work with the assumption would be sort of a local content community and Obama's campaign has pat. And the idea is that many people can't or won't accept certain that they need to campus to. Stability. If it means giving rappers soccer I think there. Pat is. There certainly it wouldn't normal person. Court event and that so Creighton period. Stability which and hitting partners but look at social services which struggled to meet the needs to be scrambling at them and we are bitch organizational vote that put people and pat. And certain holistic way. And what areas in snohomish is it. All of snohomish county that your serving. So we heard a our program terrorists aren't supported cart is available to all local mechanic instead of whom carry you throughout the entire challenging our other our current terms aren't able to a small portion of academy for president between. Snohomish and index which is considered you snohomish county. How does a family now if they qualify for. Beck's place. So we have an application process and her application and how our income levels that our family household scientists. It is typically 300% to the federal poverty standard. Our typical army. Is a household of three person and cute hat with an average annual income of just artistic. Extreme power plant which is it very low income that actually below the Fed or federal property I am Purcell. And it is well below. What would be considered a living wage in our case which is 63000. Dollars to eat it you can see 161000 brown well below about the. Why it's so important to recognize. A pet as a part of your family Melanie. You're not a great crowds suddenly get a lot of luck from people playing OK units financially picture I'll slightly Q how about pat. And there are many reasons and a lot of it depends on the democratic. We served as well also for example seniors know anything you're attracted to a single biggest Carl we can't let people traveling into homelessness are seeing here at arms for many and particularly within. He's spent much of their lives kicking you know baby care or their children under the workforce. And it you know they're getting 880000. Dollars aren't. And that's what the purity each and when seen here. I have you know as they age is there mobility plummeting that they don't get out in the community is touched perhaps maybe their spouse should pass the way they teach they didn't have children or their children have moved elsewhere which aren't. So that pat really in our primary source as. The social patient comfort care at sandwich. And we have had multiple instances are being used you and how refused medical care. We had a carpet in the community resource paramedics with. Asking us for help because there we go unemployment it has all the time they kept coming out energy shots we could not get how pitchers. Barry L because she didn't come in particular captaincy. Very candidly. I would rather not be alive and come home and not have a shot. That's a good example. Domestic violent spectacle and I'm a consultant to solve. Our domestic violence that 10-Q how pats report they're either harms right. Threatened to kill their animal and somewhere between twenty I think 40%. Were delayed leaving the situation because they fear a the safety of the animal that there appears it will retaliate action and that and that's not right about it bad. That animal you know they are still isolated and and they and they are so desperate and that animal you know is something that it. He is so important for. To be able to be. Has some sort of stability and some sort of how big territory and protect themselves. They both are just segment EC. I'm 42 prescribing. The people come in her not to party program arched her housing our homelessness issues and I have to about when he Q Chris patent. It sucked and videos and we were put a lot and it's client shoot armed men who are on the streets aren't. That many agencies that write to how open they won't go because that that pat. And it went in the responsible for the caring or a candidate everywhere that they point papering double break isn't. It. It's the one relationship they have so it. Common themes are everywhere and it's really it's something. We're talking would Melanie Ryan today on conversations she is the founder and board president.

Boat people when captain Kirk writes services for about. And I sort Beck's place. This is the main thing that you do that you have a lot of other services. As well Melanie William tell us about those please. Ascent to maintain that you mention that Bart Foster. According to our patent that's local care per pack temporarily. While the army accepts our intent that they need to get stable and we reunite ED short creek farms and those hats with their camera which means they're traveling helped gotten to a point stability where they're able to be packed together. We have what's called high school which and we really think the putts or hit an emergency order hearts how the the totality German program where there's.
