We Are Here For You

Founded in 2007, McKemie Place is the only overnight shelter for single, homeless women in all of Mobile, Washington and Baldwin Counties. Our first guests were given shelter in March of 2007 as a service under the United Methodist Inner City Mission, thanks to the efforts of the late Jamie Praytor.

McKemie Place is a safe haven for homeless women. We currently have a 69-bed capacity and provide a place for women to temporarily stay overnight. Through the gracious assistance of dedicated volunteers, who prepare, bring and serve our evening meals, we are also able to serve dinner each evening to our Guests.

While some of our ladies are struggling to get back on their own two feet, some have jobs and go to work each day. But, all find comfort, friendship and spiritual support as they seek to rebound from the challenges life has thrown their way.

McKemie Place operates under the guidance of a Board of Directors, with an Executive Director overseeing day-to-day operations. McKemie Place relies heavily upon community support to operate the shelter. Your donations are needed now more than ever! We ask that you please consider making a donation of your time, goods or financial resources. You won’t regret it.
