Located in the lower level of the Discovery House building, the entrance to Mosaic is on the corner of 2nd Ave and NE 44th St.

The first Wallingford community meeting regarding the recently opened SHARE shelter at Gift of Grace Lutheran Church will be held at 10:30 AM Saturday, September 18 at the Mosaic Coffee House on 44th Street, off Second Ave N.
The meeting follows the opening of the shelter this week amidst community concerns regarding the preschool that also operates within the church. The SHARE shelter is scheduled to operate only in the evening hours when the preschool is not operating. Some parents expressed deep concerns not only about the safety of their children, but also about the lack of community notification for the SHARE shelter. Most of the neighbors around the church were notified days before a September 12 meeting, and less than a week before the shelter’s September 15 opening at Gift of Grace. Gift of Grace leaders say the school knew of the shelter plan earlier but did not inform parents regarding plans for the shelter.
Saturday’s meeting will be the first of two scheduled meetings at Mosaic and will be moderated by Woody Pidcock, a member of the Gift of Grace congregation. The second meeting on Saturday, October 23 is designed to be a community feedback session after the shelter’s first month of operation.
